What the perfect size for artwork you'd like to hang in your home/tokers lounge?

  1. tiny. it makes the viewer put forth the effort to get up and go look at it.

  3. wow... that actually worked..... kinda.
     
  4. Personally, I'd most like one at size A0. Nice and big, but not so big that you have to move furniture to accommodate it! I like to have my wall absolutely plastered with all kinds of stuff, it makes the room more interesting.
     
  5. A2 or A1, dont have enough space for a A0 (or funds probably)
     
  6. when I do stuff A2 or A3 is about what I like to work with.
     
  7. for drawing, A2 or A3..i have done so many huge, detailed drawings in my life that it is a luxery to work on something smaller...however, for paintings i definitely prefer a bigger work space...a whole wall would be perfect, but if working with canvas, than at least A0...i like to have room to breathe when i am painting, just a thing with me.
