Reading #57 (Large) is a larger work (24 x 30 inches) of a successful smaller work. I complete between 250 to 300 small paintings (12 x 16 inches) per year. When I paint the larger piece I use the smaller work as a reference. The process goes from a photograph to a small work, from a small work to the larger work. The idea is to try and get away from the photo reference and use more instinct when painting.
