This drawing is titchy, at 12 x 16.5 cm - the painting, however, will be big - at least 48 x 66 inches.
The biggest painting I have finished so far was 16 inches square - so just a little bit terrifying. But I have started painting Peek-A-Boo which is 20 x 40 inches and have ordered the 36 x 48 inches canvas for Resting .
But I really want to do these paintings properly and I can't visualize them much less than life size. The shoulder has not been playing up and I have bought bigger brushes so I feel now is the time to get big. Well, bigger!
