Today’s session with Booth at the Fair is my 5th. By contrast, yesterday’s sessions with On the Square was the 20th and final one. I have a long way to go with this painting. It’s 44″ x 60″ but it feels larger, perhaps it’s the amount of detail or the eleven figures that make it seem larger than it is. Some paintings seem smaller than they are. Maybe it’s time to make a painting with only one or two life-size figures.
I really like the subject. It’s way too early to tell how things will turn out–if it’s going to be good enough to show the other kids.
