Tackling a Triptych
Why a triptych? Well for a few reasons actually; first it is a way of scaling up to a really large painting without dealing with the physical challenges that accompany one huge stretched canvas (like how to get it out the door for starters!), second the design possibilities of spacing out the 3 pieces creatively to suit a particular room or viewing space, and third, because I only recently became aware of the very idea of a spreading a painting over 3 seperate panels, who knew?
For my first attempt I chose to depict a broad landscape scene I had been saving for the right moment. While working away at the piece I will drop in here on occasion and report the process and progression of the painting. I think it has the 'bones' to be a special piece (pieces)?, we will see!
