Acrylic on panel, 12" X 16"
This painting is based on a photo I took in the Heber Valley near the Provo River. I started this one with my new process of doing a palette knife under painting. Here is how it looked after the palette step.
Using a palette knife imparts a lot texture because you are working with thick paint which forces even the brush layers after to be more loose because the brush skips over the texture. Overall I enjoy this new process as well as the results so I'll probably continue experimenting with it. This is one of the things I love about acrylics, they allow for so much more freedom for experimentation. Lean over fat? No problem for acrylics.
