Watching The Sunset

Palette Knife Painting
Part of our marketing process is posting images of our artwork. But many artists are worried
about their art being "stolen". It happens a lot and hopefully not so that someone can print off
a print and pirate it. I would think it's ok to copy an image if you (an artist) would like to keep a sample of other artists work for reference or as a learning tool. We, as artists are generally very sharing about that. That can be done watermarked or not.
So.....the question remains.
Do we, as artists, plant a watermarked notice on our image so that it
can't be copied for printing purposes or do we just hope that the image
is poor enough quality that it just won't work?
What are your thoughts? As an artist? As an art collector?
