The unusual dimensions of this painting came about as the result of a commission to fill a space above an old fireplace. Mounted and framed it fitted perfectly! The same client also commissioned my largest ever watercolour - a 60" x 40" piece. To be fair it wasn't too difficult. I was given a fairly free rein and just up-scaled everything, so instead of my palette I used plastic dishes for my basic colours and mixed them on the paper as usual. For brushes I used a good quality set from a d.i.y. store. Would you like to see it? Here it is in the hands of my mate and framer Ian to give you an idea of the scale of it.
And here's a look at the painting itself:
I enjoyed the challenge of these large paintings and had a lot of fun too.
Professional artist now semi retired and enjoying being eccentric!
