Palette Knife Paintings and Technique

The most enjoyable experiences, I get out of painting, almost always involves a palette knife.  I may start out with a brush in hand, but eventually the knife takes over.

This was my first experience.  I started on a canvas with a half finished painting.  One I had lost interest in ever finishing.



If you are interested in painting with a palette knife, you might want to check out this tutorial.  I found it to be very helpful.

Abstract Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Triptych Painting

Every now and then, I just have to do an abstract.  Usually painting knives are involved.  This one is no exception.   I wanted to take a square composition and turn it into a rectangle. This us what I came up with.

I have been in North Carolina, in the mountains for the past few weeks.  We are enjoying our time here.

The other day we went to the park and had a picnic lunch, something we never do at home.  There were ducks and geese everywhere.



We had a relaxing and fun time and our sandwiches tasted twice as good as usual.  The crisp fall weather comes and goes.  It is so much fun to be in the mountains this time of the year and I cannot wait for the fall color.   I will share with you when it comes.

When I work on the computer,  I can see chipmonks running back and forth, across the patio.  They are so fast, it is hard to get a photo, but I did manage to catch one stuffing his cheeks with goodies.



Have a great fall day, wherever you are.
