The big mistake when making your art bigger

Today I am talking about how to scale up your art.

What is the best way to go from making small to large art?

I did it completely wrong, which caused me a lot of wasted time and money making mediocre paintings.

So today, I want to share the one thing I didn’t know about scaling my art bigger.

It turns out simply getting a bigger canvas is just the tip of the iceberg.

Check this out.

So that was my mistake that I finally figured out. Making large-scale art is hard. I still find it challenging but so rewarding when it works out.

What has been your experience in scaling up your art? Leave a comment below, and let’s crowdsource some ideas!

I hope your studio time today is a blast.
