Too Ambitious Maybe?
When I saw that wall. I don't remember the last time I was so excited. it measures almost 14ft in width and 8ft in height. They told me that they want a piece that covers most of it. Don't think I slept that night. The next day I made my way to the art store and spent a good 3 hours in there going through the list of materials I would need.
Got to the site at around noon and unrolled that canvas. First mistake: I didn't tack it on the wall. Second mistake: I didn't make enough space AROUND the roll of canvas on the floor. Third mistake: I didn't plan out what I wanted to do before setting all of this up.
Result at the end of the day: Poor composition, cramps in my lower back, and frustration from tip toeing around. I remember laying in bed last night thinking if I should just scrap the idea of the unstretched canvas. But I think I will spend one more day trying to make it work. Will keep you posted. Here's whats going on so far (ugh)
