heres another from the beach road genre. i love the way stuff looks kind of abstract but it is still realistic and recognizable. the block in was with brush, the palette was scraped off and cleaned, new color mixed to go over the blockin, and then knifed in.
the knife is a great tool for loose, realistic looking foliage and to make multiple shapes in differing colors (but same value and color family) within shapes. not to mention the great texture and thick paint! (click on the pic to see it up close)
painting 6x8's with a T1 (small trowel tip knife) is a great way to hone your skills. if you can do them this small think how easy a larger one would be.
