Painting in Glenorchy

Posted by Richard Robinson on May 22, 2014 at 9:30 9 Comments

"Michael, I have never tried a 16 by 20 but several years ago painted a few 12 by 16 s.  My block in on 11 by 14s is all with a #10 brush and same with 9 by 12s, so I could probably do a 16 by 20 pretty easily.   I may give some 12 by…"
