These small paintings all have one or more dimensions of 8″.
The 8″ x 8″ are painted on board coated with a canvas-textured gesso surface. The 10″ x 8″ are board coated with gesso I put on the surface myself.
I like working in this size. There is enough space to have some complexity and for me not to feel constricted – yet there is an emphasis on finding a focus for the image, because the space is at a premium.
These are all done with acrylic paints.
