Oversized wall art has become a hot trend lately. Filled up with bright colors and expressive strokes, it looks much more outstanding than small and medium paintings.
Besides, it gives you more space for creative experiments and covers up a sizeable portion of the wall saving you the trouble of using more decors. You can also search online to know more about contemporary artworks.

To scale or not to scale
Since you have a bigger area to cover, you can either keep painting at the same scale (which will require more elements to make use of the extra space) or simply paint the subject bigger without any additional details. Neither of these options guarantees a better outcome.
Going for a bigger brush
A big canvas calls for a big brush. Aside from allowing you to work faster, it will also give you the opportunity to experiment with your painting manner. The large size of the brush prevents you from obsessing over every small detail directing your hand in a loose swishy manner.
Splurging on paint
Prepare to spend more paint as you'll have to cover up a large piece of the medium. When mixing colors use greater quantities than usual. If you have a limited budget, use cheaper student's quality paints for initial layers.
Coping with the canvas size
If you find a large blank canvas too overwhelming to paint it all at once, divide the painting into several sections and finish only one at a time.
