Here's a shot of the ongoing commission with some, not all, of the realistic colors being layed in. i left the orange on for you to see what the color will be underneath the light sunny side of the trees. gives that green a nice glow you cant see in this picture. up close its nice and warm and looks like the sunny side of a tree.
Below is the finished 30x40. it's all knifed and super super thick paint with Lukas Butter added to make it super textured.
i'm usually not happy when i do a painting bigger but this one i'm tickled with! what do you think?
I like it!
thanks kathleen. unusual for me here lately using the knife and Lukas Painting Butter (a heavy impasto medium for luscious, thick knife work)
its fun once in a while and takes me back to all that cape cod knifework i saw on my trip up there a few months ago.
