Wide format does not impress

This painting is pretty cool I think. In real life it has impact but when it is published on the web it looses its power due to the wide format. It become small and hard so see detail, a 4 by 3 format suits Facebook and Google + so much better.
Anyway, I like this watercolour, it’s not my normal style, I don’t wish to continue on this route either, I want to be more like Chein Chung-Wei when I grow up 😉

  1. Speechless, no matter the size, that´s what I´m used to hear. Wonderful watercolor.

    1. Hi setxu,
      Sorry that I am a bit slow to answer at the moment. I have a lot of pressure on me because of deadlines and work and as an artist. April will be more relaxed.
      I have finished painting these wide-format watercolours for a while. I get bored if I do the same thing too often. I’m currently working on a winter scene of Stockholm in a very normal half imperial format.
