Painting LARGE

Lately I have been experimenting with painting LARGE. I am known for my little paintings, so this is something new. I love painting small because I can really get right into the painting and focus. Working big is a whole different feeling! I have to really look around and use my whole arm to paint instead of just my hand.

Painting large means using bigger brushes and larger brush strokes.

It is challenging and sometimes I feel I have to tone down my usual palette because it becomes over powering at such a large scale.

For fun, I am trying out some abstract paintings. I really love it!

I like trying this new art style, but I think I will continue to paint small for the most part. You can always find my new artwork in my etsy shop
