Another palette knife painting. Considering how very awkward a palette knife in my hands can be I'm surprised how well this came out. One thing I've noticed is how it encourages me to see more abstractly in shapes instead of lines. If you can get yourself in an abstract, shape making state of mind it usually ends up in a better painting even if the goal is realism.
I've been trying to learn how to paint with a palette knife recently. Interesting learning curve there and like everything it has it's pros and cons. This piece was painted almost exclusively with a palette knife.
