The Pain of Big Paintings
This is a little TIP that I’ll pass on – you probably do it anyway 🙂 .
When I’m working on a large, or detailed art piece, over a long period of time, I break the monotony, and the strain on my senior body, and mind, by working on some smaller projects. I find the changes of physical position and visual input keeps my attention fresh, and the aches and pains at bay.
While I’m working on this large canvas of flowers I’m also painting smaller watercolours and acrylics, designing a couple of cyanotypes, and doing some photography.
