Painting with a Palette Knife

Fire Island

Fire Island

This is a great technique and I realize I don’t engage in it often enough. The colors remain fresh and vibrant, the textures are exciting, and its fun! The technique imparts a certain energy to the painting that you just cant get with any other method. Knives come in various shapes, sizes and strengths so there is versatility and flexibility. You can go really bold with a big fat knife or very delicate with a tiny little pointy one. Palette knife imparts a certain immediacy to the work, a certain liveliness…..a freshness, an excitement….
