Palette Knife Portraits From Life

Lynette is a sitter I love to paint. She came to my studio this week and I decided to paint her with a palette knife rather than brush, although I did use a brush for the block-in.

I like a good block-in. It makes me feel like I am off to a good start. Drawing is everything to me. Applying paint with a knife is a much slower process I find  than with the brush. It has been an exciting journey exploring all of this in my portrait art.

I like the subtle color harmonies I got here. Come back to see it done.
