This is my first palette knife painting. My reference is a photo my son took in New Mexico. I was trying to show where the shadows were coming across the canyons in the FG. The left side looks a little faded because I took the photo near a window on the left side. :o I'm new to acrylics and this was fun! The size is about 20x24". Thanks for looking. C & C welcome.

I think you did a marvelous job with this, good depth and you get a wonderful sense of the way the light is coming across, the ruggedness of the rocks well portrayed ..Well welcome to acrylics, you did super...like it very much! Can't wait to see more!!!

Welcome from me too!!! I think you have done an excellent job on your first knife painting. I wouldn't even dare to show my first one!!!! Some nice colours and shapes there. Looking forward to your next one.

I like this too. I've never tried knife painting so this really catches my eye. I like the deep shadows.
