LONG SHADOWS, 5X7, OIL, SOLD

I have been playing with the palette knife off and on for the last month and I'm begining to get quite fond of it.  For me, it is a nice change when you get those "painting blues".

I agree, it's fun to play around with the palette knife when brushes get a little boring. I love the texture you've created in this one!

This is very nice, creates a soft and peaceful setting.

Great job!! I think you have a knack for using the palette knife. Lovely.

I really like this departure you have taken here because it is well suited for your brushwork and transition to palette knife. And...the colors are perfect.

Nice one, Carol. You're right, the palette can cure the "painting blues".

This is great Carol! You've portrayed so much detail so loosely. Great shadows and lovely blue in the distant hills. I find painting with the knife so difficult...but you have mastered it so easily!

I agree with Kathy, the knife agrees with you. This has such a bold feeling to it, your knife work adds excitement to what would normally be a quiet scene. Beaufitul job!

I really like this carol. Palette knives are fun to work with. Help us loosen up. These colors are great.
I am doing my first EVER plein air workshop this weekend.Scared.

From another palette knife artist - I like this piece - very loose and lots of texture. Funny, for me, if I want a change, I go to the brush. :)
Having fun is wonderful.

Palette knives have always scared me (mostly because I've had some disastrous attempts with them in the past), but I just got a fresh one and played with it some this week and actually liked it.

I love what you did with yours in this painting, I can just see the layers of trees and could almost walk right into that painting.
