6" x 12"
oil on stretched canvas
Remember the little boat I was having problems with a few weeks ago? Giving my arm a rest from the large painting I'm working on, I pulled this one out and figured I'd tackle it with a palette knife.
I really do love the feel of paint using a palette knife, its very different than brush feel of paint and results are strong and direct and can be put down quickly without quite as much of the thought process as there is in a more detailed painting.
This is painted in oils 6" x 12" on a stretched canvas. Its a new brand of canvas, made in Canada and the quality seems very good. I'm testing out a few new supports over time and while they can be similar in many ways, some surface just seem to accept paint more easily and smoothly than others.
