But I am taking the most daring step during my teaching life painting class of slowing myself down via a palette knife. I also was honored by a recent palette knife portrait commission from life, the sitter knowing it would be a slower process.
Think of it like adding 30 lb huge weights to your art boots. Wading in molasses, but delightfully so.
I move like a snail and students/sitters don't get to see quickie results like the regular brush finish. I am trusting in my art journey.
It is really a leap of faith. Are you with me?
