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.
