With the blue sky monotypes from March still floating around in my head, I felt the need to try something similar on a larger scale. The way that the paper reacts with the paint in the prints gives the color an interesting saturation and I've tried to match something similar. Having more control over the process at this scale and medium, I think the painting has more atmosphere than the works that came before it. Moving from the original several inches of the prints to 2'x4' definitely gave things a different feel, and although I've tried to hold onto those things that I originally enjoyed about the prints, I find myself missing some of the spontaneity and looseness that happens more freely on a smaller scale. All in all, I'm still happy and plan to see what else I can learn from this back and forth of scale.
