Paint with a Palette Knife-Moses Botkin Challenge Oct. 2013

I love to hear Suzanne (Berry) howl! Her work is typically so precise, I felt this one would flip her out. she nailed it, as usual. All kidding aside, a good friend of mine, Urania Christy Tarbet never uses brushes with her oil paints. Says cleanup is almost instantaneous with a knife.

I started using one when I had a large space to get pigment onto. Mix a big pile very loosely, and then load the knife to transport it to the canvas. I love the texture AND evidence of the colors used in the mixture.

Mine is on watercolor paper that had been thickly covered with metallic gold acrylic underpainting.
