Blog / 2010 / Painting Big

September 30, 2010

A couple of months ago, I set out to challenge myself with a very large painting, a full-length life size portrait of my partner and myself. I’ve known for a while that I prefer working on my paintings when they’re off the easel and laid on the floor, but it wasn’t until I started to work on this enormous piece that I understood how much I depend on being able to transition smoothly between working vertically and working horizontally. This painting taught me that lesson in a very eloquent way and the video shows it.

This video was filmed by David and edited by me!
