No Shoes From This Point Onwards

I was asked to send a piece to my former teacher's art exhibition. And I did this as 2 meters tall print on canvas and sent it to the gallery. 
I was thinking about what connect the artists and I thought about the unique skill we have to visualize the places in our minds for other people. 

original size is 11779x16657px at 400dpi
The reason why I did it in this scale is because I wanted the brushwork detail to show in the wall-size print. A lot of the surfaces are painted intentionally in layers with different levels of pressure so you get this sort of raster effect of color when you view it from far away. 
I spent a lot of time just deleting all descriptive detail that the viewer could see without my "help".

Sometimes I feel like just suggesting a shape gives the piece more clarity in the viewer's mind than me taking away that connection by filling in too much definition. 

I hope summer has been good for you all. My vacation has yet to start but it's so close now! =)

2... meters? This must have taken you forever!
Upea työ - jälki on hienoa, kun se ei ole liian kliinistä. Hienosti toimiva vähän harvinaisempi puna-vihreä kombo sen niin usein nähdyn ja trendikkään (mutta toimivan) sini-oranssin sijasta.
