Small Landscape Painting | Marsh Painting | Small Oil Painting | Daily Painting | Southern Marsh by Carol Schiff | SOLD

I just love playing with the palette knife.

Purchase here
I love smearing the paint around with it.  I love the textures I achieve.  I love trying new techniques with it.  I like the way I can just give my knife a swipe and it is clean, so unlike cleaning brushes :(

It is maybe a little addiction.

Most of the time, I like to incorporate the brush and the palette knife into a painting, but some days I just go all the way with the knife.

It's kind of like cleaning my kitchen counter.  I could clean off my counter for hours on end.  I have to have a wet sponge and then I could just wipe, wipe, wipe.  It's just so satisfying.....and I guess that it how I feel about using a palette knife.

The only thing I don't like is how fast my tubes of paint disappear!

Have a fabulous weekend!!

I really like your use of the knife and the colors are just delicious! Sorry I have been away for so long. I see my two CS originals every morning and they bring a smile to my face.
