This painting was done strictly using palette knife. I found that I can’t render so much but have to consider what color to use before actually applying it on the canvas.
Lost edges to melt into the background. Using a palette knife for accent highlights.
Another attempt at strictly palette knife painting. I like the idea of palette knife painting. It’s definitely cleaner than using brushes. No gamsol, just paper towels. There are two artists who are palette knives painters, Sharon Sprung and Christopher Gallego . Instead of the rough textures that I get their paintings are smooth.
Christopher Gallego was interviewed by Antrese Wood of Savvy Painter
