Inspire Me Thursday - Think Big!

This week's Inspire Me Thursday was to think big. Most of my collage pieces in particular are quite small, rarely bigger than A4 size. This little collage is no bigger than a playing card and I always wondered if I could paint a bigger version of it. So this week's project was the perfect opportunity to find out. The canvas measures in at 19 x 16 inches, not big to some people but might as well be a football pitch to me! I didn't try to reproduce the original exactly, just used it as a starting point and let the new one go it's own way.

OH, MY...

If you ask me, you should be painting more! What a fantastic piece.

I agree! I love the painting. The collage is lovely but I think the painting is better - you get that little bit more detail and I love the way the shading turned out.
