14 X 11 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
$650 (free shipping in the U.S.)
The study for this painting I completed a year ago with the intention of doing a larger version of it. Family obligations kept me from this project until now. This, along with “Yellow Koi” was juried into the Orange Open Annual Art Show.
Lately, I’ve been trying to paint larger. Most plein air painters (painters who paint on location) don’t paint anything larger than 12 x 16 because the light changes so quickly that it’s difficult getting everything on the canvas in time. My comfort zone is right around the 8 x 10 size. Now however, I’m pushing my studio paintings to larger and larger sizes. It’s liberating having so much room and to be able to leave it on my easel and come back to it later.
