I prefer the second option because these websites already have customers and you do not require to give traffic on it. If you start your website then you require a good amount of investment.
First, start selling art through online websites that are already stable and then if you get success, start your website.

But if you are more experienced and want to reach out to your buyers directly then you can create your blog or website and promote your artwork there.
However, your blog/website must receive hundreds of visitors who not just appreciate great art but also willing to buy them. You have to build your brand name only then you will be able to sell through your blog.

I would say it is not a zero-sum game that either you have to depend upon the art-selling website or have your website. You can have both. As a beginner starts with leveraging the power of art-selling websites and later on with some experience create your blog and sell it there.
Sell Your Art on Social Media
Never ignore the power of social media. You just have to use two social media platforms to build a personal network of art admirers.
On Facebook, you can create a small post with few videos describing your artwork. You need to keep updating content regularly. You will draw a lot of audiences through Facebook alone.
If you are into selling photos then Instagram is better than any other art-selling website. You don’t have to spend any money showing casing your artwork. Everything is free!
However, your audience must be genuine because just having more followers doesn’t mean they will also become buyers of your art.
You have to build an army of followers and admirers for your art on Facebook and Instagram.
I am going to conclude by saying for selling art as a full-time career you have to be very pragmatic. If you want to survive as an artist then you got to choose the right kind of art.
While creating an art keep three things in your mind.
- Art is in great demand and has a lot of buyers.
- Art is very easy to create with less money and time.
- It pays you well once you sell it.
You can use all the ways mentioned above to sell your art online & make a great living.
