Painting large scale
Every week has a new project! Last week I made a large sign 48x96" to advertise The Art Shack from the road. First we hung the board on the back of the house for ease
of painting. Pieter rolled out an undercoat of outdoor primer for me and then I put a grid on the board to help me plan the drawing.
A small sketch on an index car taped to the board helped me find the shapes on the larger space. The underpainting is shown painted with alizarin crimson.
Voilà, the final painting using three primaries and white. A final coat of urethene and the sign is ready to go up!
Come visit us at 18 Broadway Rd, Hope River (just off of St Mary's Rd RT 224) and you can take your picture with the advertising board!
