BIG paintings....the story continues

This is the second of my large canvasses. There is so much colour in here, I have really got my paints out! I need to make tonal contrast though. That's my next move.

Update, and starting the second

I will put this to one side for a short while whilst I start the second large canvas. The challenges of large paintings are so different to that of much smaller ones. The concept of scale gives a lot of possibilities, and small marks can be overwhelmed in a big painting. Conversely, keeping the overall image simple is incredibly important. I can understand now why large scale artists use very long paint brushes....the ability to see and immediately control what is going on without having to stop and stand back is pretty handy.

Working on a BIG painting

At 1.5x1.8m this is one of my largest paintings, and I have another canvas the same size ready to go! I am thinking of a recent work, and developing the Monet-like theme in these pieces. I can see so many things to do in this painting, I can't wait to take it back out to my studio.
