Painting Flowers with a Palette Knife

Everything I paint is a portrait, be it a flower, face or leaf. So said Lucian Freud the great British painter. I love his work oodles much.

I painted this portrait of pansies with a palette knife this week, begun as a demo for my recent guest workshop for The Malibu Art Association.

Compliments of yellow and purple were used. It feels like Spring is coming.
