Days 4&5: 30-n-30

Abstract Painting Sun Shower

Sun Shower 28″ x 22″ Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas Suzan Hughes-Kennedy

Sunday, I decided to play with a painting from worship last month which didn’t get finished and I thought I would gesso over and begin again. It looked like this:

Unfinished Painting

Using the paint left over from that session, I began using my regular small palette knife to apply the paint.  It was so much fun but the knife was so small and I used a lot of additional paint.

I have been wanting to take a class from Leslie Saeta for a very long time and this painting has rekindled that desire to make it sooner than later.  I want to learn to use a palette knife better.  The way I stroked the knife made a big difference and I could cut through the layers of wet paint to create depth and additional colors.  Had to be very careful not to mix too much on the canvas though, I could muddy the colors very easily.
