A Foamy Shore

Another session, another pallette knife painting.

This one I made during a local gathering for painters in the town where I live, and was actually an attempt to paint over a church view I was pretty unhappy with.

To be able to paint over the church I needed to get a thick coat of paint on top of it, so I decided that a pallette knife panting would surely do the trick.

So I set to work, adding on the sky at first. After that I started to set up the outlines of a wave and a foamy sea below.

I ended the session dragging some white foam over the wave, to make it look a bit more energetic.

So basically, in 20 minutes I ended up creating a painting I was much more pleased with than the one I had used about four hours on…. Oh the irony.. 🙂

      1. Yes, I actually meant palette marks but it was early morning here and I needed a coffee! I like the freedom you have demonstrated with the palette knife.

      2. I find it very free flowing using a palette knife. Stuff just happens on the canvas, unlike brushes where it really takes some fiddling getting things right ☺

I would love it if you left me a few words
