Palette Knife Painting
This is the painting I painted last Thursday night live at the Springfield/Branson airport for a benefit. You can scroll down a few posts to see me busy at work at my easel. I chose to work with a palette knife for this event because I knew it would be much easier to wipe my knife off than to deal with changing out water for brushes. There were other fine arts there performing as well. I began with a blank canvas that had been undercoated with a terra cotta gesso and no other idea. The painting is a response or expression capturing the feeling or mood to the evenings Flight of Fancy event.
