Playing with Knives!

Mother always said don’t play with knives.  When I tell my father about my painting, he asks me if I used a pallet knife!  I mainly use a pallet knife for mixing paint.  In the book on abstracts, the author recommends knives for painting.  I have a set, and then some.  I recently purchased a large cake decorating knife for when I go large!

I most likely didn’t use the knife in the right way (is there a right way?), but here is what I came up with.

Seascape - Acrylic on gessoed Paper - 4x6"
Seascape – Acrylic on gessoed Paper – 4×6″

I’ve added a few splashes for extra effect.  This is my first pallet knife painting.  The main thing is that I had fun doing it!
