Above: ‘Spring Sunday’ oil on cradled panel, 30 x 30 inches– I have recently been working on a large still life painting filled with various subjects. All in all it took me 4 days to complete, working an average of 6hrs a day. It was very hard work and it took a lot of energy to finish. Moving forward, I will be working to the ‘less is more’ model! Regardless, I am very happy with how it came out. I think doing detailed ones like this every so often will be fine.
