Working large is a whole different animal. Not only did I go through
a ton of paint, I was able to loosen up and slash the brush with 'chords'
you can't do on a smaller scale.
Painting big is funner than I thought! :)
After some discussion with an artist friend, I decided to
paint this in oils instead of sign paint. Now I'm glad I did.
I made a much larger glass palette to accommodate the colors
and mixing area. I wanted to try colors I've heard talked
about on other blogs. I wasn't so concerned with using
a particular color palette, or a limited color palette.
I wanted to try new mixtures to see what I could get. This is
an experiment I've wanted to try. If I create a monster, well
Halloween was just here!
This painting is not finished. I wanted to post its progress
at this stage. I don't want to fiddle with it, so a few dabs
here and there and I will call it done.
I hope you like it.
