This was painted with a palette knife exclusively. I doubt that I will totally embrace this method, but I certainly learned a lot from the effort. It's the first time I have painted a 100% palette knife painting, but once I committed to it, I immediately sensed the merit of working this way. Creating "broken color" and texture seemed effortless. No wonder many artists appreciate their knife as a painting tool...I might do this again.....it was fun!
Painting: Celeste Bergin, Fishing boat, 2011, oil on 9x12
