Going bigger

Fun challenge. Time for a career enhancing move.

My husband is now making my cradled boards. He's doing a great job and I'll soon have enough panels to last me quite sometime.

Do you paint large?  Got any suggestions for the learning curve besides of course needing more paint, more medium and larger brushes........

I'm using Golden Open Acrylics along with Open Medium.  But still getting things to REALLY blend takes a bit of getting used to on a bigger scale.  I've been working on 16 x 16 and wouldn't have thought 24 x 24 would make that big of a difference.......maybe it is all just in my head. 

Started these two yesterday.....

Hi Paula - Firstly, thank you so much for the lovely comment you left on my blog! I thought I would come and check out your own blog and I LOVE it! It's gorgeous!
Hmm... Maybe I could suggest oils? I used to be frightened of them but have recently fallen completely in love with them! Tou can blend for hours! :0)

If you are going to work big, you might want to do some stretching--upper and lower body, to get your mind and heart into a bigger sense of yourself. I'm excited to see the new larger work!
