Acrylic with Palette Knife, 8x10"
Sorry for the glare on this photo. It is from my scanner. The painting is quite shiny. I need to adjust my proportion of gloss to matt medium. In a couple of weeks, I can put some matt varnish on this piece and then scan it again. I'll try to remember to show it to you then!
After spending a chunk of yesterday morning on a painting that wasn't going to work out, I spent a chunk of yesterday afternoon playing on this one. I think the playing won out over the working! This one was purely for my amusement, seeing what moves I could make with the palette knife and just enjoying seeing colors next to colors.
I remember when I took the reference photo this fall, what attracted me to the scene was the way the leaves seemed to spiral around the tree. I hope I have managed to convey some of that effect here...
Thanks for looking!
