Beginning a new series based on last year's Blowin' in the Wind painting that won an award. Impressionistic. See the Studies' page for a few painting steps. Or soon we will ahve a blog post on karenhalbert.blogpost.com documenting this series.
Palette Knife only (no brush). The intent is to capture the patterns and colors of the Aspens on our Sangre de Cristo Mountain range. I think that the patterns allow the viewer's eye to move around the painting. And the theme IS the full scope of the colors everywhere.. One issue might be that the texture of the sky is quite different from the rest of the painting.
