I'm a messy painter - my paint gets everywhere. At the end of a
session my palette (a very large piece of glass) is covered in pools of
paint many of them intermingled. Palette knife paintings need lots and
lots of paint so there is always lots left over. If you're squeamish
about using a lot of paint then palette knife painting is not for you -
but why not give it a try - it can be very liberating.
always have a stack of small gessoed panels available and the left over
paint is perfect to cover the panels. I can feel a couple of mini 4x4
abstracts coming on. Perhaps a seascape and a cloudscape. Tell me what
you can see.
