Tools and Texture
I love love love the texture the palette knife brings to a canvas. This week I bought a few new palette knives to try out. The texture you can get from a different kind of knife is pretty remarkable. For me I always use a round circular knife for flower petals. You get a nice pull of the paint when you lift it from the canvas that mimics the natural petal pretty nicely. Anyone up for a knife party?
After completing a few color studies this week I was left staring at this:
Will you please stop yelling at me? I see how those petals jump off the panel and it makes me want to break the "Please Do Not Touch" policy. I know you're just laying there enjoying the hardening of your skin and the crispy air but in all fairness this has to stop... please. I can't concentrate.
