This depends on the size of the painting. I have done one day paintings – usually on the smaller side of 8′ x 8′. It’s hard to generalize but on the average it takes me anywhere from 2 to 4 days to make a painting, ranging in size from 8′ x 10′ to 12′ x 18′. Most paintings are about 12′ x 12′ and take about 3 days. Larger team projects like the Sistine Chapel ceiling for the Youth in Arts festival took 6 days to complete, with a team of over 16 artists.
