Little Study, Morning in Provence, 6 x 6
Bit of Light, 6 x 6
Ooh, I am lovin thicker paint and the look of it! I have been playing around with thin and thick paint, and thick is winning my heart. It's hard to let go of the control of the brush, but as I teach in my workshops, a cruder tool can't help but produce free-er results. I guess it is the visible sculpting with paint that appeals, both to the viewer and the painter in me. While being strictly a "palette knife painter" holds no personal attraction, the use of a palette knife along with fingers, brushes, etcetera can produce interesting and often random-ly good results! YAY, an element of fun and surprise - I'll take it!
