Bucky says to me, "It's only a 12x12, you can do this."
I say, "But it is a very expensive Aquaboard panel!"
Bucky says, "I am bored with you now."
Ok, here goes. It's not even what I classify as the big one. I had wait on the plumber to get here so I decided to implement the plan I had which was painting a larger one from a smaller one.
I know it's only 12 x 12. Bigger---not really big.
So I started out like this with some collage knowing that most would be covered up except for the bottom part which I knew would be wiped off more.
The collage is finished now and I collaged the sides with printed tissue paper. Not sure where I got that tissue paper.
Then I did a paint sketch as to where the flowers would be in the blue background color.
At this point I forgot to take a picture because the right brain kicked in. Yay, right brain!!!
So here is the 12x12 finished on the very expensive Aquaboard. It really was easy knowing where I was going since I had painted this painting 3 times before. Monet painted many series of the same thing as did Diebenkorn who is my very favorite abstract painter. So, that gives me permission! I am a rule follower so I have to be given permission.
There is just a little bit of glare on this one but I wanted you to see the sides. I probably should always photograph before the varnish. Ok, so I accomplished one goal---to paint a series getting bigger. I guess at this point I am so accustomed to painting this one that the "BIG" one might not really be that bad.
