Hi Friends! I gave myself a specific task with this one. I toned the canvas first which I rarely do but should. I toned it with burnt sienna, I really like to use a warm tone when I am outside painting all those greens. After I toned I worked with larger bristle brushes to block in my large shapes. I then switched to softer brushes to lay the details on top. I'm pleased with it, I really like seeing the burnt sienna peeking through everywhere.

Hi there! Sorry I haven't posted lately, no good excuse. This is a recent painting that I did from one of my reference photos. This is oil on a 8" X 10" canvas. Although I love to paint everything old houses hold a special place in my heart. I am considering painting this one on a much larger canvas.

Hi! Another landscape painted with a knife. This is oil on a 11" X 14" canvas. I jump around a lot on subjects as you can tell and I'm always willing to try anything new but these new knifes have been kind of life changing. I love the painterly look you get with them and it feels so good to push the paint around. Have a wonderful day.

Hi! Both of these landscapes are oil on 8 X 10" canvases. Both were painted with a flexible rubber spatula kind of thing, like using a fexible palette knife. I am having just the best time using this new tool. I will try to upload a photo of the knifes also. Give them a try, so much fun.
