Mango, wine and pot
This is my beloved little pot (blue enamel, garage sale find). I paired it up with some wine and a matching mango : ). As I continue to explore the palette knife, I am finding challenges. I really see how it helps to be able to put the correct colour down the FIRST time so that you don't get too much thick paint mucking around. It would be an interesting study to do the same subject with a palette knife and then with a brush. And to see how one informs the other. I am always trying to simplify. Honestly - I find it easier said then done! Maybe tomorrow I will try this set-up with a brush and see if I can simplify further. Last time I tried painting the same subject twice, I got tighter on the second day which was kind of odd (and the opposite of what I was expecting). Take care!
