Acrylic with Palette Knife, 6x6"
I started this one with 20 minutes of my lunch hour yesterday and finished it last night when I got home. This one is from one of my photos. I found it very difficult to get soft cloud edges with the palette knife and ended up using my finger, which is very strange for me, since I normally paint with gloves on to avoid touching the paint. I wonder if I can prevail upon two friends who usually paint with palette knives to do a demo of clouds on their blogs--Carol, Jacklyn?
How is everybody who is in the challenge doing at this point? I find myself needing to be more into my own thing and having less time to look at everyone else's work. Yesterday morning, I used my time before work to scan and blog the painting on yesterday's post, and that is what I will need to do this morning, too. Then, my next time to check email and Feedly is normally my lunch hour, but I painted on my lunch hour. And last night, I also painted. I haven't had time to look at all the paintings on Leslie's blog in a few days. I know it's a good thing for my painting life to be more focused on my own process, but I do miss all the inspiration! So, how are you guys doing???
