Create your stretcher bars whichever way you prefer keeping in mind you'll need more braces for this larger canvas. One brace for every 2 feet is the rule. It will also cost a bit more for the materials to assemble and paint this larger piece, maybe twice as much, but you'll also end up with a much more valuable painting when you're through.
