Breaking and Entering by Kathryn Stotler

Breaking and Entering
20 x 20
Acrylic on canvas

This seascape is a mixture of palette knife and brushwork. I began the painting with the knives to create the sand, the rocks, most of the ocean and some of the sky.  Then I went over areas with a brush to create the reflections and the sky as well as the even back line of the ocean.  I hope I am not breaking any rules here but I simply could not get it to work by using only the palette knives.  And I feel it needed the texture of brushwork to make composition work.
