Hello everyone!

 I’d thought I would share one of my most recent paintings today, this is titled “Afternoon Meadow.” The concept for this work came from my desire to continue to improve my painting technique with a palette knife study. While I love to use my palette knife when I am creating abstracts, it keeps things loose and flowing and doesn’t allow me to get bogged down by minutia, I don’t remember ever creating an entire landscape with only the knife. I had to give it a try, and this painting was the result of my efforts.

I created this work over the course of two painting sessions, about one hour and a half each or three hours total, which is not too long for this type of painting. The trouble with this piece was finding the right balance between detail and abstraction/impressionism. I had to rely on color to create the illusion of depth while exploring a more limited acrylic palette in the process.
