The top view.

Searching   Oils on gessoed 140lb paper   12 x 16 inches   

Mountain and energetic study.

Studio Musings...

Continuing my series of oils on gessoed 140lb watercolour paper,
I have shifted up a size from 5 x 7 inches to 12 x 16 inches.

Often when working on a small study the change to a larger format can be either liberating or frustrating.  Small studies are intimate and will draw the viewer in to explore the subject.

A larger one is no hiding place...if I am to present the scene I need to be bold and upscale.
Larger brushes, daring sweeps and a big imagination have now entered the stage.
