That said, I have loads of paintings I'd like to try on a larger scale. I would like to work on a larger scale in general. I see my work on a computer screen or in a slide show, and think: I wish that were 4'x4', or even bigger, rather than just the 10"x10" it is. So... I took a 10"x10" piece, and tried to "copy" it at 3'x3', just to see what would happen.
|This piece is 10"x10", and it's one of my favorites. It came at the end of a long day and a long process, at the point where I was covering over big swaths of intricate collage and paint.|
|This is a snapshot of the 3'x3' copy, not a good photo or scan, but that is only one reason it looks washed out and flat.|
I will keep working on it as an exercise. The goal is not to reproduce the original piece, but to see what will happen, see what I can learn, from trying. Any tips on working at a larger scale are most welcome! I'd also be interested to hear of your own challenges with this. Thanks for visiting.
