Painting large



Hello Beautiful People!
Here in Canada this last weekend was Thanksgiving. I had a lovely time and cooked a nice meal. Opie and Lily enjoyed some turkey :)

I also had time to create this large portrait painting. I really enjoy painting large. It is so much more physical than the smaller works I do. You really have to stretch your arm when painting big. Plus I use different brushes, I find I can get a softer look on the larger paintings because of the bigger brushes. It allows for more room to push the paint around :)

Portrait with kitty and bird is up for auction on Ebay.

Hugs to all!

I really like the warm, autumn colors you chose. Thanks for the insight on painting on a large canvas. Maybe one day I will be brave enough. Happy Holidays!

A real sweet tweet! I have been thinking about making a large painting lately...and a very small one,too. Thinl I'll start small and work my way up.
Happy belated turkey day.

Beautiful painting, Tascha, as always!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite Holidays! I'm glad you had a good day!

We can really tell you're painting in a larger scale, it's softer and different from your other paintings and you can add more detail to it...but personally i really enjoy the smaller ones!

Nice painting ♥

Hi Tascha, your painting is beautiful, as usual - yes, I too prefer painting large paintings which reminds me, its been ages since I painted, been playing around with jewellery for weeks now :D

Hi Tascha. I love the way she looks. Her skin looks so creamy. Beautiful work my dear. Have a great Thursday.
