After painting for almost a year on 12" x 18" formats, I have recently started to paint on tore open cardboard boxes, the sizes mostly 3' x5' or so. This requires a whole new set of muscles and and new way of standing at the easel (or away from it and over the art on the floor). Bigger brushes but still a "disregard" for the surface as long as the image gets its day. I like dealing with the new texture and splits in the surface. I also gouge and tear the surface if I feel like it, and put the paint cans down right on the painting. House paint on cardboard.
