This study is for a larger piece. Yes.. I did say larger. Everyone suggests going bigger so I can compete on a professional level. But I'm not sure that is all together true. I was told the judge of the FBAA show where I took 1st immediately went to my piece and picked it out. The Young herd sire had caught her eye too. Since you can't have more than one award to a show so she picked what she felt was the best piece. Those paintings were 8x10 and 5x7. So I still have it in my head that the more emphatically powerful a piece is at first glance, along with technique of medium on closer inspection, has a greater impact than size with most judges. But I do know from showing animals its any given judge at any given time.
