20 days of design/painting! Wake up, go to work, come home, paint a little, sleep, repeat as needed!
This is by far the largest painting I have done to date (30 x 48 inches). My wife commissioned me to paint something interesting and imaginative that was vibrant enough that could be hung in our kitchen, above our table.
It all started out with an idea and went from there.
One of the biggest pieces of advice I can give to new artists is that you just can’t start painting without giving yourself a plan and map. It would stink to start painting and realize that you didn’t make enough room for an element that was important.
Here are some progress pics:
Finally, after 20 days, this painting was complete!
