Palette knife portraits


Fun with the palette knife. Blue and orange color harmony.
This palette knife portrait was done in my teaching class at The California Art Institute this week and then finished in the studio.

I set up two light sources in the class on the model, one blue and one orange. It was a challenge for students - and me too.

I do like the texture one gets from the knives and the happy little accidents. Will be playing with palette knife portraits a bit more.

I actually have used palette knives in my painting for years. Love them
