Gray Kettle

"Gray Kettle", 14 x 14 In, Oil on Panel
Using a bigger canvas, this painting presented the opportunity for more freedom of the arm and the brush. That is sometimes a relief after working on a very small panel. But there is also a parallel psychological habit of thought--that a bigger panel represents a lot more work. In a way that's true, because I have to account for more canvas space, but sometimes it also feels a lot less restrictive.
