I think a bigger size could be really fun, because you could really get into the color variations and shadows on the individual parts of the cone. Day nine of the 30 in 30 Challenge.
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
