Hidden Pool - SOLD

Hidden Pool
Oil on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"
SOLD at $27, with shipping included.

My little granddaughter, Kayla, wanted to paint on my lap on Saturday, while she was here for the weekend, so I let her play with my oils and a canvas panel. When she was done, and frustrated (she's six, and was trying to paint "Elsa's Castle" from Frozen) I just took the canvas, and spread the paint already there, as an undercoat. (Yes, she had on old clothes, and yes, those clothes became paint rags.) So this is a palette knife painting on that canvas. I've used the palette knife in two ways, as a frosting spreader tool, and as a pencil tool. If you click to see this one larger, you'll be able to tell.

Down the little bank, jump across the stream, cut through the field, and you're there, at the barn and outbuildings of this farm in the foothills.

Here's a detail (close up) of  the palette knife work.


This one was done with a red undercoat, then painted in acrylics, loosely, and then palette knife in oil over the entire painting. Time consuming, but effective. The tip of the palette knife gives me an almost pencil-like control, over stroking and blending and placement of colors.
