This is the photo that I use for my painting. I got this photo from "Painting my Photo" by Clare Buchta. I love painting old abandon boats for they still have a story to tell and it is up to you to figure out the story.
I had never work with a palette knife but always wanted to learn so while at Oak Glen I started this painting
After the show I put away the painting until June 4 when I pull it out and started back up to painting it again. This is what I posted on FB..."Will I am back in my little kitchen studio painting today an dose it feel good. This is the painting that I am working on. The last time I work on this one was up at the Oak Glen art show this past April. But I am doing something a little different this time. I am going to paint this painting with a palette knife and maybe add a little bit of some paint brush stokes if any. Will post a new pic ready soon..."
Here u can see I have added some plants and texture to the sand and added the planks to the boat. This painting is 95% palette knife and 5% brush.
I am calling this one "Abandonment", it is a 12"X12" Box Canvas - Palette Knife Acrylic Painting and it is for Sale.
I also started a new 5"x5" painting of a little sea scape from "Paint my Photo. Sorry I do not know Photographer.
I am posting the different stages of this little painting that I did.
Next month I will be at the Edward Dean Museum art show, 9401 Oak Glen Road, Cherry Valley, Ca on July 21, 2013 Come on out and say Howdy and while your there, stop on over to Oak Glen and have some yummy apple pie.
