Sail Away, palette knife painting

"Sail Away"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard

This is just a simple composition. I am practicing my palette knife paintings. Getting more comfortable with it. Still need a brush for little details. It is exciting to see how the colors all work together, especially when I put a thin layer of one color under the thick layers. It makes nice value changes. I sprayed the painting with a mist of water this time, and it helped me to be able to slow down some.

Thanks for looking!
