Pond View, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on board, 7"x5"
soldI'm experimenting with texture these days, and love the way the palette knife leaves bits of color below the surface, adding interest to the canvas. There's something freeing about the way the knife will pick up and lay down colors, not always doing what I expect.
In time, I'll gain skill with the knife. But as I gain skill, the freshness and surprise will be lost. It's almost impossible to gain mastery and still have the delight of surprise. Too bad.
