The size of my paper and canvas have a rather large impact on the look and feel of my art. The drawing below is cramped compared to the drawings shown in the previous two posts. This because it is on 11 X 14 inch paper, while the others were on 16 X 20 inch paper. The painting shown above is on 42 X 56 inch canvas, while most of my recent paintings have been 52 X 60 inch canvases. Again, the painting shown above feels uncomfortably restricted compared to my other recent and larger canvases. In fact, if I am going to be able to deal with the space I want to create to express myself more adequately I feel I must go even larger in my paintings (I have stretchers for 60 X 72 inch canvases).
