Transforming a 6 step gray scale into varying tones of taupe, the artwork gradually took on the hues of the cottage interior and resulted in a 72" x 36" x 4" piece that remained dwarfed above the fireplace and towering cathedral ceilings.
The largest piece I've completed to date, I had to take a break after this one!
