Cupped and Committed

Cupped Mallard Drake, 20" x 24" Oil on Canvas

This painting started as an experiment learning to paint with a palette knife. When you paint with a knife, each mark is made up entirely of pure color - no blending, fading, or smudging. So you have to make sure each mark you put on the canvas is the right color, value, etc and is in the right spot. It's a lot of fun painting this way. It's a very loose process, yet very challenging. It forces you to grow tremendously, and the effect you cant get is vibrant and strong.
