Just wonderful. You've managed to maintain that loose brush feel even in this huge painting. Well done

great painting - very hot !
what equipment did you use?
what kind of brushes?
how long did it take?
how can you paint on such a large scale and still get it right?

I used charcoal for the drawing that took me about an hour, I worked from a small example I made with Photoshop( 4cm on 8 cm) and divided the wall with small marks in 8 equal parts for reference.
I used Maimeri acrilycs and varnish brushes for the painting, the size of the brushes was from2.5cm width up to 6cm. I allso used small paintrolls.
The first layer was the bright yellow, then I started working with burnt sienna wich I used in several degrees of thicknes I finally used burnt umber for the darkest parts. It took me about 10 hours to do this, but most of the time I was running backwards to see it from a distance
