Not a lot to say about this one, I was drawn to this scene because of the dark shadows in the trees, and the shadows on the otherwise very bright green grass. And that blueish building in the distance added a nice break in the green/white/yellow color scheme.
This is what I've been trying to get at all week...it's just what I wanted from a knife painting. Getting away from the canvas panels really helped, I thought the canvas texture would be good for this type of painting...but I just don't like it, it gets in my way.
It's probably been 6 years since I've done a palette knife painting, but yesterday I saw this painting and it inspired me to try it out again. I just loved how it was sort of representational but abstract at the same time. I loved the broad green color and how juicy the whole thing looked...I could just stare at it forever.
So in response I painted these two pieces, I like the first one a lot...
