Think Big. Paint Small!

There are a lot of big 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?

Big Art Small Canvas gives you all the guidance you need to succeed at creating small paintings. It features 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 quickly learn how to:

  • select good supplies on a budget
  • mix colors the right way, the first time
  • 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 oil painting with Big Art Small Canvas!
