Zinnia


 
6"X 6"
Oil
Ampersand Gessobord
$100.00
With this painting I became aware of the tactile quality of the paint and used it to sculpt some of the forms.  The paint is quite thick in some place.  I think that it is close to palette knife painting.  These zinnia are from my garden this year.
Where does one draw the line between what you see and what works?   Do any of you have an opinion?

I have been taught that that is the process. You have to do what works for the painting, light source, notan etc. This painting is luscious and fun both!

I painted a 6 x 6 in class today using both a palette knife and a brush. I LOVE the look of thick paint, and I especially LOVE your painting.
