Landscape in progress








I’ve been working on this landscape today.  Above you can see how I have blocked in the color with a brush.  It actually looks pretty cool this way but I just love layering on the buttery paint.  This is on panel so there is a lot less give than canvas, so I have to be careful with the amount of pressure I use.  Too soft and the underpainting won’t grab the paint, too hard and the knife digs into the under layers and paint squeezes out the sides.  Painting on panel is nice,  I get that immediate raised texture with a few layers, below is where I have started to add paint with the palette knife.
