Wednesday July 23 art class at The Austin Contemporary, the lesson was to paint with palette knives for texture. While I did use a brush for some shading washes and a few details at the end, this painting “Guatemalan Pitcher & Pear” was done almost entirely with palette knives. The pitcher had a Guatemalan village scene painted on it which was trying to abstract using just knifes, not easy! The teacher said he liked my technique, and said I seem to have some natural talent.
