Completed project from Painting II. After the initial washes, all the paint was applied using a palette knife. This challenging requirement forced me to reevaluate my painting style: little details just don't work the same way. I had to abandon timidity and go for bold markings, but at the same time remain balanced and aware of how the colors worked together on the canvas.
A high-quality image of the finished product will be coming later this week, but I wanted to show the development from plain burnt sienna background, to local color wash, to knife application all the way through the pretty-much-finished painting. Thank goodness for cameras on cell phones! I only wish I had taken a few more pictures during the latter half of the working time. Ah well.
