 :thankyou: Val, I have 4 at that size, but it will be quiet some time before I do that size again. The orangutang painting I did was the same size. They both took me 175 hours.

That's fine. You can't do too can't large ones unless you have a large rich client base O0

 :thankyou: Bill and Nolan. My main problem after doing something to that size and level is that I have trouble getting motivated for the next one. Finding the next subject I want to do. How do I top my last one? Do I need to top it? these are all things that go through my head. Being aphantasic does not help the matter. I am still working, but digitally at the moment until my next inspiration.

Go from the large one directly down to a small one. That takes the pressure off having to top the big one.

Remember that your customers have different size wallets so you need to cater for all sizes O0
