I'm trying my hand with a palatte knife. This is 20"x30 on stretched canvas, and took me about 2 hours!

Difference is radical, I think, and very freeing compared to brush on large canvas. The one below took quite a bit longer.

I like your palette knife work a lot! I've been trying out the knives with acrylics and it's fun!
Your second painting has a wonderful style going in the way you use color etc! It's a winner!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Hi

I like these a lot. I've never thought of using the palette knife with acrylics butmay give it a go now I have seen these. They're wonderful.

The first one done with knife is very expressive to me - has a sense of urgency in it, that may sound odd since it is a landscape but that is the feeling I get.

The second one done with brush is beautiful no doubt but the first one makes me look longer.

Thank you all for looking and for your comments. Interesting that the knife painting holds attention longer. It may be that the brushed landscape is a more complete statement and doesn't leave the viewer with much to fill in themselves, as the quicker palette knife application does. L :)

Laura,
I love the piece you worked on with your palette knife.
It's a very cool abstract piece!
It works extremely well and is very dynamic!!!

Hi Check out mjt and his abstract landscapes your pallette knife one is very similar to some in his style.
I like them both the first for the chaos of it all and randomness and the second for its bright bold use of colour and also its total opposite - tidiness. If this makes any sense? I know what I mean :D
I would say go with the pallette knife if you can do this in 2 hours :clap:

Probably so. :) Both are fantastic.

I love the way you captured the light in the foreground of the second painting and the detail and colour of the flowers.

The first painting is a nice moody painting. Maybe it was the colours you used. Loved the dancing effect of the pallete knife "strokes" you used.
