I told you about a large scale painting project I am working on. I have been taking pictures to document the process and record the steps so that in the future it will be easier.
I wanted to do a large canvas -- really big, large measured in feet. But, then I didn't think that I could easily transport it.... So, I changed my mind and decided to do a three part canvas. They would be hung together, approximately 3 inches apart. Each canvas is 24" wide x 48" tall. The overall finished dimensions would be 78" wide x 48" tall. (6 1/2 feet x 4 feet). I would use acrylic paints.
This is the first time I have done a painting this large. I was really excited to do this project, but also hesitant. The large blank canvases are intimidating. I was worried that I would do a poor job and waste the time, supplies and money that goes into it. But, when I told Jon about my plan, he encouraged me to do it. So much so, he gave me enough money to buy an easel large enough to hold the large canvases and all the supplies!
I washed my brushes and let the canvas dry overnight.
To be continued....
