Since I recently also started painting with oils beside watercolors and gouache I realized that I would have to revise my way of signing artworks.
Until today I was signing all works with my normal signature (short initials) which worked fine with pencil on the masked, unpainted part below the watercolour or gouachepainting... but when painting with oils on canvas you don't mask the edges but rather sign with oilpaint in the lower part of the painting by using the brush.
Even if a brush is a very versatile tool it is hard to paint certain shapes which really was the case for my former signature.
So that's why it is meaningful as an artist to create a handy art-signature which works fluently with the brush.
One might perhaps think that this is a banal issue...
NO,... I think well signed artwork is a big deal... it's both practical and nice if the artists name is readable and well shaped (with a constant appearence on all artworks) and last but not least thoughtful placed and colored in the paintings composition.
Hopefully this can be an inspiring input to some other artists out there
