I have completed and delivered a very large 48″ x 60″ blue flower painting to The Cloud Room on Capital Hill. I started out with 130 tubes of paint, of which I ended up using 70 tubes, which is a tad over TWO gallons of paint😃.
When I do any painting I always paint the sides with a custom color that is specific to that particular piece. When doing sides of flower paintings, there are a lot more finer details and flowers to paint around. I usually do 4 times around, sometimes more. To get an idea, the one I just did, if you add up the sides it is 18′ around. In this case I painted the sides 6 times which equals 108 linear feet! That is a lot.
Also, I did a couple of thing different which I tried to streamline the process, I liked how it went and look forward to creating another (not so big) very soon. Here are a couple of pictures!
Big painting!Here it is, in its new home!
