Preparing a big painting

Lately, my paintings are in the 40″ x 60″ range. For example, the painting in this photo, The Fair, is 44″ x 60.”  My next big painting ups the scale. The grided canvas in the photo is 60″ x 72″ (5 x 6 feet). As usual, I’m working on the design and when it’s done I’ll transfer it to the canvas.

The new design has 4-6 near-lifesize figures. I plan to reuse The Fair’s rightmost woman in the new painting, although my designs are fluid. 

 

Here’s another shot of the new canvas. This shot provides a sense of scale.
