About this item

Discover the pleasures of creating big art on a small canvas!

There are plenty of reasons to paint small. Smaller canvases allow you to enjoy everything you love about oil painting with less expense, less mess, less space and less time. What could be better?

Think Big Paint Small (previously published as Big Art Small Canvas and updated with new demonstrations and art) gives you all the guidance you need to succeed at creating small paintings. You'll find more than 12 step-by-step demonstrations that show you how to paint a variety of still lifes and landscapes--all on canvases measuring four inches or less!

You'll learn how to:
  • Scale down your subjects to fit a smaller area
  • Create dimension, depth and volume in your compositions
  • Paint realistic shadows and highlights
  • Capture a range of textures and reflective surfaces
Each demonstration guides you from blank canvas to completed painting. You'll even find sound advice for framing, displaying and marketing your work.

Great things really do come in small packages. Start maximizing the rewards of painting small with Think Big Paint Small!
