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:
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.
