Double Old Fashioned
16" x 20" Oil on RayMar Cotton Panel
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
As an artist, I have many choices when I stand at my easel to paint. I made some choices when I started with this canvas, but switched gears several times along the way. I started out placing this canvas horizontally on my easel. And, I painted a landscape. I decided it wasn't working for me, so I thought that a vertical still life would work. But I was using wide brushes, and after several days, made a switch to use a palette knife instead of a brush. I scrapped the whole painting off, and started all over.
Here is a couple of close-up shots of the flowers. The shapes overlap, the knife gives the paint texture and interest. I need to put a title on this painting, let it dry and varnish it. Contact Kay for purchasing info. Thanks, KMW
