This is an original oil painting completed on a double primed cotton canvas support. This particular composition was done entirely with a pallet knife. If you look at my collections, you will see that I utilize the pallet knife every so often in my work. Most of my work is done with a brush, but sometimes, i feel a little more aggressive, and out comes the knife. The texture and maybe even attitude a pallet knife brings to a composition is very unique. An artist cannot control the knife completely, so, we have to learn to let go and allow the knife to do its thing. More times than not, the results are worth it.
