Up the Creek 4, Palette Knife Painting, Impressionism Landscape
8 x 10 inches
(ready to frame)
Acrylic on canvas covered hardboard
This painting is the forth in a series from Arbuckle Creek.
This was one of those paintings I just kept struggling with. I learned that I do not like a canvas mounted on hardboard for a knife painting. If I had known, then I may have sanded it down and gessoed it with a colored primer, or not used it for a knife painting at all. Oh well, this is how we learn! I did end up using the brush for the boat and some of the branches. I thought I might add birds or someone fishing, but I don't think I am up to working on it again. It took me three tries as it is, and I like the final result.
