While miniatures are fun, sometimes an idea calls for a large format to have the most effect. I'm not an expert on what size to paint an idea, but I do get a gut feeling on which direction to go.
This piece insisted on being big. I kept trying to work it into a smaller painting, but it didn't feel right until I settled on 30" X 44". Yes, a lot of "ground" to cover.
I worked on some of this over the holidays and this is the stage I am at.
