Had no work to do today because of the holiday so I decided to do a quick painting. Yeah right! Quick wasn’t the word for it because I also decided to do the biggest painting I’ve ever done. I figured that do it in a decent amount of time, I’d do a palette knife painting. Another rowboat, so that shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone.
Four hours later I put the finishing touches on this one. It’s hard to restart Pandora radio when you have paint on your fingers and don’t want a psychedelic mouse.
I still find myself overworking certain areas and need to figure out how to stop doing that. It is supposed to be loose and rough, not smooth like a Renaissance painting. Maybe I should head back down to Pasadena and take another palette knife workshop from Leslie Saeta. She is the queen of the palette knife when it comes to boat paintings.
Anyway, here it is. 22×28 oil on stretched canvas.
Let me know what you think.
