Seaside Stroll

Seaside Stroll

Super palette knife work Jan, your figures are very convincing and I like the shadows.

Thank you for the kind comment, Tessa - much appreciated...

I agree with the last comment - I find figures difficult enough with a pencil! I can almost feel the sun and the wind off the sea.

Thank you for the nice comment, Fiona - it was indeed a very sunny and windy day!

Good work with palette knife, Jan.

I seem to have stopped using my palette knife like this Jan. You're inspiring me to have a go again. This is so full of movement.

Really like this - very clever indeed

Thank you for your encouraging comments Cesare, Marjorie and Heather. Glad to have inspired you to use your palette knife again, Marjorie - I look forward to seeing the results!

The freedom and movement in this is super, Jan, I agree with Marjorie...note to self: use knife more freely!

Thanks, Thalia - I'm finding that using a palette knife is rather fun and freeing!

This is really clever , skilled mark making. So descriptive

Thank you for your nice comments, Maureen and Diana...

O love the subject matter! This painting really captures a feeling.

Great painting and so natural looking.

Reminds me of walking down Bray seafront,...very nice work!..

Hang on Studio Wall

An oil painting on canvas board using just a palette knife - I really like how using a palette knife forces me to avoid details...
