Above, "Contented (Cleo)," from the "Cherished" series, 7" x 11", portrait of Cleopatra the Tabby of the Nile, acrylic on museum quality panel, $469, inquiries may come to me.
Below, On Top, "Jen's Cleo," also from the "Cherished" series, 4" x 7", starring the same Cleopatra, acrylic on museum quality panel, collection of Jen.
Below, On Bottom, the photograph inspiring the above two paintings.
In process views of each painting can be seen on the studio's Facebook page.
I used to do this all the time - work on two paintings of different sizes simultaneously.
Not sure why I haven't done so recently - it's a great exercise. Provided your marks are the same in scale from panel to panel, it helps your eye to simplify forms (an exercise in painting loosely). It also trains and tests your drawing skills while honing color mixing abilities.
I also like to use this as an exploration point for trying out various splashes of random color. The larger painting provides an opportunity for a greater variety of color, and the smaller painting demands more harmony.
I'll have to do this exercise again!
