Think Big Paint Small

Discover the pleasures of creating big art on a small canvas in Think Big Paint Small.

There are plenty of 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.

Think Big Paint Small (previously published as Big Art Small Canvas and updated with new content and art) shows you how to succeed at creating small paintings. The book features more than 12 step-by-step demonstrations. Learn to paint a variety of still lifes and landscapes — all on canvas measuring 4" or less!

Other lessons include how to:

  • 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.
