|Suddenly, that 36" x 48" canvas isn't looking so bad|
I prefer painting on canvas. I like my canvases. When I paint, I paint big, so the bigger the space the better. In order for me to paint on paper, I have to get heavy duty watercolor paper, which can be purchased in notebooks. I've never seen any much bigger than 11" x 17", and, I have to keep in mind that it needs to be framed. I'm cheap, so for the contest I choose my subject and the size based on what can fit in the less expensive on-the-shelf frames at Michaels, rather than custom framing it.
On the plus side, the smaller size does help it get done a lot faster.
I would love, love, love to have one of my pieces accepted into the contest. Sure, there's a prize for the winner, but I just want to get one of my pieces in. It would be so awesome to have one of my pieces hanging in a show and would get me exposure I could really use.
Anyway, you can submit 3 entries per entry fee, and here is my 1st! It's pretty simple, but I like it.
And the finished product.....

I've already sketched out my 2nd entry, so I'm just zooming along!
