I've been painting in miniature again, more sand dollar pendants!!!
I actually really love to alternate painting on canvas or tin or whatever larger surface I'm working on at the moment, with painting in miniature such as eggs or pendants.
Someone recently asked me why I switch back and forth between projects and more specifically, different sizes of projects, rather then just say....finishing my Hydrangea Wreath canvas painting and then moving onto something else.
I love to alternate between painting projects because I feel it really gives my mind a change, a rest, a much needed break from things. It keeps me "fresh" on whatever larger project I'm working on at the moment...which right now is my canvas wreath. I guess I would say it allows me to step back and give myself much needed perspective on what I'm doing. This also gives me a mental break from constantly thinking about the same thing and I think, lets me step back and look objectively at my work and see what needs to be done next.
