Palette Knives

I love the freedom that painting with a palette knife gives me.  It is impossible to be too precise so capturing the essence or feeling of a place  is easier with large brushes or using just a palette knife.  This painting was done entirely with a palette knife except for the initial underpainting which was a juicy flowing on of color and gamsol.

  1. I "met" someone online the other day who paints with her fingers (in oil). It has the same kind of feeling as the palette knife and made me want to try it again (with gloves, of course). Keep up the fabulous work!
