Knife Painting



One day my wife announced to me that I was going to do a knife painting.  I said “Oh really?”  She had this still life all set up  and my canvas was placed on the easel.  She handed me my pallette knife.  I was an obedient husband.  I did the painting.

There is absolutely no brushwork on this piece.  I applied all of the paint with the knife.  There is an interesting texture to it.  I could lay some of the paint very smoothly with the back of the knife.  Other places had ridges, like the blossoms.  If you’re an oil painter I recommend you try this method once in a while.  It’s fun.

I really like this painting. I agree, you should do everything she tells you because she always has great ideas for your art.
