Palette Knife Paintings

You just get one go.

No going back over it.

No trying to fix this bit or change that.

Just ONE go.

Think it through…colours…order of colours on the knife…light, shadows, …

Play it through in your mind

Visualise the paint flowing off that knife

One swish across the canvas

and voilà!

You’re done!

That’s the theory…now the adventure of making it a reality 🙂

“Stump”  is the first of a New Zealand bush series done with paletteknife using acrylics on canvas. It was found in the Opepe Forest on one of our afternoon walks with the dog.

What do you think? Do you like the colours? Are they New Zealand bush colours? Leave a comment below and tell me your impressions.
