My first Square painting from DAC and it’s big. It’s 55 cm by 70 cm and about 70-80% is all one colour. I thought from the reference image the background was black but actually it’s a very dark brown, number 3771.
I found that the 20 sections I split it into were too big, each taking around 3 hours to complete and that was with using a multi placer.
I also found the best way to handle it was to do the 3771 first and then add the colour in.
However after completing the piece and stepping back, I fell more in love. Squares take longer but the finish is incredible and you can clearly read the writing.
This will be given as a Christmas present this year and I’m sure it will be well loved and hang pride of place in the kitchen.
I’ve since bought Long Island Iced tea to go with it.
