Ashley River View

6"x6" Oil on Wood Panel

This is my first attempt at palette knife painting, also my first painting on a wood panel. I primed the panel with gesso and let it dry a few days. While sitting out at Drayton Hall Plantation , used a brush to paint in the sky, then I used the palette knife to paint in the rest of this scene. As soon as I started it, I realized that I had never even seen a demo of someone painting with a palette knife! Considering all that, I thought it came out pretty good.
