Re: Question on canvas size and pros and cons with acrylics....
I find the more I paint and get comfortable with the medium, the more I like larger surfaces. I started doing 8x10s, moved up to 16x20s, and now really enjoy 18x24 and 24x30 surfaces. I do have to mix a lot more and I try to write out a rough ďrecipeĒ for any mixes involving more than two or three hues, just in case I need more.
Lately, though, Iíve been wondering if larger pieces arenít holding me, a rank amateur, back somewhat. I am a slow worker by nature, and it takes me so long to finish a piece...I wonder if Iíd learn and develop more doing lots of smaller pieces. To that end, Iím thinking of starting a habit of doing small pieces (6x8 to 8x10) alongside the larger ones so I can work out issues and experiment a little more freely.
I donít have a website, but one day I will, then Iíll show you all!
(No, really: when I make one, Iíll let you all see it.)
