This painting was really different for me - it was done ENTIRELY with a PALETTE KNIFE
I had a good time with this and enjoying using the palette knife and all of the effects one can achieve without a brush
This is oil on canvas board 12 x 16 - perfect size for her wall
Many of you have enjoyed reading about the process of painting and seeing the stages of the work - my work usually takes a lot of time and many layers -
I am trying to experiment with styles that are more loose and expressionistic or impressionist - with more of a focus on colour and light so using the palette knife was an exciting experiment and I am pleased
I have been reading a lot of wonderful blogs by different artists and enjoying learning how to make an art blog - thank you all for your support and your comments
I am off to create more ...
