Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter weekend experiments

My partner was determined to get out the oil paint over the weekend and had sketched out a couple of ideas. I tend to avoid weekend art but she always gets me involved and likes me to 'colaborate'. It sometimes leads to a few artistic arguements when Im told that results arent what she had in mind at all

With the first image, I suggested she try using a palette knife. She asked me to show her how but its not a technique I've spent much time on. I got carried away I'm afraid...



The second image wasnt going as she expected and rather than get too involved I spent an hour on the couch while she fretted on. Eventually she gave up and handed it over so for the next hour we passed it to and fro. We had a lot of fun and we both love the result. it's differnt for sure

I came, I saw and I kept my mouth shut at least I stopped typing before I got into real trouble. I guess if you experiment you can find out all the ways things don't work and keep what does.

Re: weekend experiments

Looks like fun. That first one has possibilities with just a bit more definition and colour modulation. Either that or it's already the latest thing and I've missed out again......

It was Harry! My partner said almost exactly your words, but it's encouraged me to try more knife painting. I do have a fair collection of knives, but they were at the studio. I've just purchased a knife with a very small blade (well three actually, bargain pack) Its a Winsor & Newton Painting / Palette Knife - No.24 which I'll be trying out very soon.

As for the second image, I can recall only too vividly, my art master at school saying of one of my paintings. "It's mental m****bation boy!" Seems I still haven't learnt

Ha! If a teacher said that nowadays they’d probably have the thought police down on them.....

Re: weekend experiments

Good to hear from you Earl and I'm pleased you were entertained enough to get a knife (or five). I have a knife that I sometimes use to slice up a bad canvas
