Locally Grown

"Locally Grown"

 More palette knife fun. This time from a picture I took of a local farmer that was
giving his time to teach kids how to plant at Nash Farm in Grapevine, TX.


Palette Knife practice

"Big Sky"
11 x 14 oil

This was painted from one of my get lost exploring the Texas farm
roads outings that I'm becoming more and more a fan of. The sky looked
exactly like it appears in the picture, with these giant clouds.
I started out painting taking lessons from a instructor that only uses a
palette knife and no brushes. I always use a palette knife for finishing
touches, but it's been a while since I used it as my primary utensil. 
I shared it on Facebook and was surprised at the positive reactions,
considering how quickly this came together.
I'm going to make an effort to use the knife more often.
Wonderful day!
