24" x 36" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
Thick layers of paint cover the canvas, giving it color and texture.  My inspiration for this painting was a field of aspens in Evergreen, Colorado.  Sharon and I stayed on a working ranch, and had plenty of wildlife and beautiful landscape to paint.  Here is a pic of the painting in progress:
I painted the sky, foreground and trees with a large brush, then went into the painting with the palette knife and lots of paint.  In the end I punched it up with more color.  This is day 19 in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge with Leslie Saeta.   Thanks for Kay for more info on this painting.  I hope to be back in the studio....I have an abstract that I am working on for tomorrow's post.
