Cabin in the Trees

Cabin in the Trees, 8 x 10

Fairly certain that I'm showing my ignorance of the proper method of painting with a palette knife here, and because of the novelty of the process I've missed some areas where my values should agree, and don't.....BUT fun!! This one did begin with a paintbrush, but then spiraled out of control into a palette knife event. My infatuation with lots of paint is leading me right now--it will be interesting to see how it settles out.

I love it, Julie. So expressive and great variety in the color groups. Looks like a lot of fun.

Great painting. I thought of you tonight at my art club, and thought why not lay on the paint? I didn't as much as you have, but I felt like it.

I think your palette knife paintings are brighter than your classic ones! Almost as if buttering the paint leads you to more color!

It's really very good. I think you stretched yourself and succeeded!
