My latest commission. The canvases barely fit in my studio!
Actually the canvases fit in my studio. But I didn't. You should have seen me crawling under the tables to get to the other side. Ugh.
I've spent the last few weeks working on this very large commission. The commission came from an interior designer and was a diptych painting with each canvas finished size measuring 6' x 5'. It's been a difficult commission to paint because I could barely fit and paint them inside my studio!
I had two canvases stretched one foot larger (all the way around) than the finished size. After I painted them I took the canvases off of the stretcher bars as they will be shipped overseas to the client. It was an incredible experience but it took a lot of paint and a lot more time than I expected! I encourage you to not shy away from painting large. I will post the photo of the painting as soon as the client sees it!
In case you are wondering where I get my large custom sized canvases they were made at a company called Artist Brand Canvas. Nick is the owner and he is a great guy. He came over last week and mentioned they ship all over the US. They have great wholesale prices for artists!
