I was comfortable with the process shared as it is an approach I frequently take in creating my own art. Basically, show up, be present, open to whatever wants to express itself, and follow your creative flow.
Overall, be in the mystery of creation instead of focusing on painting an aesthetically appealing product. These are my own words, so other people and the workshop facilitators (Stewart Cubley and Annie Rousseau) could describe it differently.
With the approach of either starting off with one 26” x 20” paper and adding to it or starting off with several papers attached already, I got to experience what it feels like to take a big, paint-tipped brush to big painting surfaces.
I LOVED IT! Especially when I started with several pieces of paper already attached to make one huge canvas. My pieces ranged from 26”x20” to 52”x60” to 91”x 60.” Yep, the largest one is approximately 7.5 feet high by 5 feet wide!
So here in my blog, I’m sharing with you my BIG pieces. All done with bright tempera paints.
Now, I just need a BIG studio space to paint BIG paintings!
