Knife and Sponge work

Hey It has been a while since I posted. These are recent attempts using mostly palette knives and sponges. 12x16 on canvas or primed panel.
Thanks for looking. The mountain scene is Yosemite. To put it in perspective the granite cliff faces are about 1300 feet higher than the tallest skyscraper in NYC

Nice. All three work great. Love the rock wall in the first one, the sky and leaves of the second and dramatic color and texture in the last.

Re: Knife and Sponge work

I like these, all three. The cliff in 1 and the trees in 2 look great. When applying paint with the knife did you apply the paint thickly or thinly?

Thank you. The knife paint is applied thickly,straight out of the tube. There is a surface texture on the painting almost like a bas- relief when finished. The knife can be used for thin applications too, like you can load the edge with acrylic ink and make straight lines, or load the flat side with thinner paint and press it flat or drag it to depost paint across high spots. That's good for bark and rock face textures. Thanks again!

Re: Knife and Sponge work

You do good work with just a knife and sponge! Very nice! I often use a sponge for portrait backgrounds.
