There is nothing more satisfying than completing a painting you’ve been working on for countless hours over several days!
I have just recently started to work on larger canvases and I it is a bit challenging:
Well for starter, it obviously takes way longer to paint it. One section at the time, dot by dot, it is a work in progress.
Secondly, you need more space and be mindful to let the paint dry in between section (acrylic dries pretty fast) so it does not smudge.
Finally, it just takes time to see the final result - but it is all worth it tho.
For that type of project I always love to use a matte background and satin or metallic paint. I draw the pattern then I picked the colors as I go, which is one of the most interesting part.
Then, come the execution! Overall, it takes around 1 week from start to finish. In the future I will try to create some videos of the process, in the meantime, enjoy some close up shots :-)
