Palette Knife Painting
Oil on Masonite
This painting has layers and layers of color. I started with a piece of gessoed masonite. Then a layer of venitian red acrylic paint. I was experimenting with the red as a base layer. You can see some of the red coming through on the painting. I learned alot from this painting...and although it was fun, I could not wait to get back to painting on linen or canvas. Many artists paint a base color before they start painting, but for some reason it bothered me to have a solid red base coat...my eye prefers an off-white clean canvas. I have this framed in a handsome black frame...it will be going to the Dutch Art Gallery soon. Thanks for viewing this blog! You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-532-0325.
