Hill Country Farm Study

Hill Country Farm Study, 6 x 8

I've been wanting to experiment with a brush / palette knife combination painting for a while, and finally did so today. The small size made it more of a challenge to use the knife, but I always end up getting more color on the canvas with it. I think it turned out to be an interesting little painting.

Julie I just love the addition of the palette knife work. You've inspired me to try this on my next painting. It adds beautiful texture and light to the painting. I think you're really on to something.

Hi Julie,

I like the lush paint effects you get with the palette knife. A great painting.

It is very interesting the combination of the two. There is great movement in this piece and the light shimmers! Nice.

Just discovered your blog – your art is very refreshing. I like your use of color and the texture you create with the paints. Lots of talent there.
