Painting BIG

I started a very large painting (large for me anyhow) which is about the size of a door...1mx1.8m approx. This is a detail of it. I was going to take it RAWByron, but had to pull out. Just can't afford the flights at the moment. 

Anyway, I will finish the painting...I will aim for it to be one of my best, and I will put it up for sale at Artfinder. There is something freeing about the start of a BIG painting...it's when it gets to finishing it I run into problems...how to make it sufficiently detailed and not fussy.

Tahitian Convicts #9 and #10

I don't have a huge amount to say today. I've been training my little ass off walking uphill and down, trying to get fit, eating well, joined an outrigger team, so need to get to the point where I am as strong a swimmer as I was as a teenager.

But more than that, I just have been miss paintaholic. Painting painting painting. I've been exploring lots of different styles, but mainly focussing on the Tahitian Convicts, using different media...pen and ink, pen and ink with pastel, pen and ink with acrylic, straight acrylic....

I hope you are having a lovely week and finding many moments of joy. 

This one is in progress...not finished yet.
