Bar Butterfly





Acrylic on Canvas - 18x18 inches - Click Here to Buy

Just finishing last week's Reflections Challenge from the Daily Paintworks. I found from painting the red bowls a week or so ago, that I do actually like working big. It took a while to get used to the amount of paint needed (and I'm still getting used to it) but I like being able to do big gestures with the brush strokes and stay away from the tiny brushes.

This painting is three times larger than the objects themselves. Someone walking by observed my progress only later to return and remark, "Oh, I didn't know they were so small."

I'm impressed Super G. From your chunky juicy landscape strokes, you show you can get into some beautiful fine detail also.
