Hi everyone,
here is my next Golden Open acrylic landscape painting. This time I used only palette knife. The surface is masonite primed with matte medium. Perhaps it would be better to make underpainting with gesso. I did read the book "Painting the impressionist landscape" from Lois Griffel for oil painters. Golden Open arylics dry very slowly, also I gave them a chance. C&C are welcome as always. It is cross posted from landscape forum. The water in the foreground is slightly overexposed on foto.
Regards
Rudi

What is the size?

I like this immensely and feel it would be grand in a large size and the abstracted knife marks at a distance might really come together in a visual moment of sheer energy.

Thanks for the kindly comments, size is only 40x30 cms. It was my first try with palette knife and I didnt know if it works well for me. Next try will be bigger.

Just now I photographed it again. I think the pic works slightly better because there are no reflections. Also I removed the white strokes from the middleground. Thanks for the kind comments.
