Moving on,  I have been working with large scale canvases, those that I am not used to. Usually, I work in sizes of A4 or A5, the next project that I undertaken is stepping away in my comfort zone in the form of a large A3 canvas. The A3 canvases although simple and very minimal can be extremely time consuming, they also remind me of advertising billboards that conceptual artists take for influence. While the size is intimidating, I have found that the new colour mixes and engages well with the size and structure of the canvas as a whole. The quote reads, Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art, this quote is by Pop artist Andy Warhol. The idea and what prompted me to fill up the large canvas with text was first inspired by the artist Bob and Roberta Smith, in which his painted letter towards Michael Gove inspired me to create a large piece and fill up the working space as much as possible.
