large drawings

I've been experimenting with larger drawings today. These ones above are 18 x 24 inches, which is pretty big for me, since I usually make 5 x 7 or 8 x 10 inch drawings. It's very liberating to work that large, and for some reason the size inspires me to draw different content. The top two were done with marker, and the bottom two with oil pastels (with a dash of watercolour).

I put the chair in front of them so you'd get an idea of the relative size. (The basket on the right holds our kids' wooden train set). What's funny to me, as I look at these while writing this blog post, is that they look no different than my other drawings on this site. The internet makes everything the same size.
