6 x6 oil on paper
All this talk about palette knives and seeing these luscious paintings forced me, a dedicated pastel painter, want to take a stab at it (pardon the pun). Yes, the knife is cumbersome, No, I don't know what I am doing. Yes, I will do it again. My favorite parts are the streaks of unmixed paint and the thick glossiness of it. I didn't draw, I just slabbed on the paint. Palette knife painters out there...please give me some tips...ok?
I did this and one other today, Monday. I will post the pastel landscape later. Tomorrow, Tuesday, I have surgery...so I will sleep the day away, unaware of everyone. Weird, uh? Don't worry, it's dental surgery. When I was 16 when I thought I could do anything, I surfed. Well, I landed up with a surfboard in my mouth. Ouch! Therefore, every few years I need a, should I say, tune-up.
