                                    7" x 5" Oil on Canvas
Day Six - 30 in 30 Challenge

Today was a very busy day with the least time yet for daily  painting.  However, the show must go on - or something like that - and since I want to do a few more beachscapes,  thought I would attempt a small one and (try to) use the palette knife.  Am I a palette knife artist?  NO!  Later this year I hope to take one of Leslie Saeta’s on line palette knife workshops since the textures one gets with the knife cannot be duplicated with a brush - at least not easily.  Wish the photo showed better the old  posts and some of the grasses where the knife was used and the “marks and scrapes” left alone!  Guess that’s a start!!

NO BOUNDARIES came from a sketch in an older sketchbook that I’ve enjoyed looking through again.  Didn’t spend a lot of time - wanted to photograph it before dark and it’s totally overcast this evening - dark came early!

  1. This is beautifully painted Rosemary! I love the texture that's left after using the palette knife. Perfect for a beach scene. Nice work.
