This is another painting done with the knives. I used a lot more color than I usually do in this painting, trying to loosen up. Using the knife helps me in that respect, as I cannot blend and I can not get every detail in as with a brush.
I was very honored to be asked to co-author this book available for sale as of August 2014 online and in many fine book stores. The book features the work of several fine artists as well as myself giving instruction on how to paint still life in acrylics. The book is beautiful and very helpful to anyone wanting to learn how to paint landscapes, still life and animals in acrylic and is full of great advice and lovely pictures explaining how to step by step.
