This is how the painting looked on Monday. By Tuesday night, I'd taken a palette knife to the rocks and they now have some luscious texture. Of course, that means that I have to bring more texture to the rest of the painting and I'm okay with that, really I am. It's just kind of scary, since I thought I was so close to being done and was happy with how it was going.
I am excited about this new lesson I've created for myself. I bought three new palette knives today at Jerry's Artarama and I've already pantomimed how I'm going to use them on the painting, so I know they're a good investment. Wish me luck!
