Voy Kay 16 Jan 2020

Now, this one was reserved and foreseen on a smaller canvas (16"x20") but when I noticed the possibility of using a major big canvas instead, 30"x43", to attach on the inside of one of my outside doors to function as some sort of 'trompe l'oeuil'...., I was hooked with the idea!! I needed to improvise and built a provisionary easel that could handle the canvas size. The taping was hardly a problem at all, I selected Bob's framing style in order to keep this giant better under control. A giant task it was also, I could not do this in my mini studio in my office so had to move to the living room. I took it slowly in order to be very precise at this creation since a bigger painting asks/shows more details. In all, 5 hours of hard work, cleaning and two coffee breaks included.
I cannot say anything was very easy, except for the grass perhaps, but nothing is difficult either. This is just one great painting that you can take on easily, I surely recommend it.
Concerning painting with giant size canvasses, I'm gonna write an article about this soon with my befindings and tips. Hope you enjoy this giant! Oh, btw, I left the surroundings on the final picture, including my wife's feet, so that you can estimate the size of it!
Special thank you for community member SUNNYLADY who gave me the excellent advice to watch a youtube video on creating evergreens (I have trouble painting those correctly) and I was able to finally see several of my faults and improve on them. SUPER!!!
