My plein art work lately has been done on boards of an unusual size: either 10 x 5 or 12 x 6. This long vertical or horizontal shape makes me look harder for an interesting design when outside...and I was tiring of the standard 5 x 7 or 8 x 10 boards. My thought was also that once I got into the studio I could do some larger work from my favorite pieces. The format for blowing this up, so to speak, would be 24 x 12. Or one would think....
Here's another example"
I guess all this explanation comes as last week a friend asked me if I could repaint a small piece I had done but in a much larger size and shape. The answer, of course, was yes AND no. And maybe now you understand why.
