Friendship - SOLD

Next in the series: a yellow rose. I began this one as I had the other three but it went south - I lost my value range. Argh! Second time: same thing. The third time I picked up the palette knife and tried very quickly to block in the values. For each attempt I had been squinting and very conscious of value and colour shifts, but for some reason this one threw me on my backside ; )
6" x 6" / oil on panel / SOLD

Well ya did the right thing by slappin' on the paint with the palette knife, because that's what I love about it. ;)

I love the texture too. And the use of yellow is great, such a hard color to get right.

Some paintings are born to give us painters a hard time, but the end result on this one looks like it would be worth it. I LOVE the texture you built - every stroke looks just right. It's one of those paintings you just want to touch.

Beautiful Kim, the texture adds a nice element, now get off your backside! :)

I don't know why sometimes paint just flows onto the canvas and other times it's a wrestling match! You wrestled this one into submission, Kim. I like it!

Absolutely GORGEOUS! The subtle shifts in values are so great. You really inspire me to try some palette knife work.
