Early Spring

I finally painted an early spring inspired work. I made this with one of my favorite methods of painting-Palette Knife! I would say 95% of this painting is done with a knife. In order to achieve the inlay effect with the lines, I work the smaller areas first. Working with the knife insures a very impasto look. The technique, in my opinion, is a fantastic way to make colors glow and the added surface texture is icing on the cake…or canvas. 🙂
