Recently I have been looking at some of the canvases that I have painted with new eyes. Instead of looking at the entire canvas, I am using a 55mm lens on my camera to see the details of certain areas of the canvas. These miniature detail shots are inspiring me to paint large canvases that are less "busy" than what I usually paint. It is an interesting exercise and has been consuming most of my studio time recently.
