Palette Knife return

I just returned from a superb painting holiday in France which I’ll soon write about. I missed you all..

The name of this post sound like a horror movie name.. Mind you it is only our action in Oil evening class. Yet again we had to paint with no brushes and the palette knife turn to be my friend. Karen said that the finish paintings remind her Paul CΓ©zanne… I was not so sure it was but took the great compliment. Enjoy.

  1. Doron ! So glad all is well I was a wondering where you were …missed you Lol
    A painting course …. great … look forward to hearing about it when you get the chance .
    You made me laugh with your horror movie words … seriously though I’m wondering how big this painting is .. and how big the palette knife .You have some fine lines there ..
    In inches mind I haven’t gone all metric yet .. or ever will I don’t suppose πŸ˜‰

    1. Hi Poppy, thank you for your kind words, missed you also. there is not much horror in my life as I rather see people laugh..
      I think it is 16×12 if we talk inches. The knife.. left it with the victim at the scene as I had to run.. I know they have different sizes.. not sure.. not huge. I’ll wait for the police report and let you know. Not going metric yet.. have you forgot we should be European… Enjoy your weekend.x

    1. Katleen thank you, I enjoy working with the knife, I find it very expressive. Some time hard to get the curves but I hope to get there.

  2. There is always room for a little nudity in art
    and this piece has a very nice edge to it, being
    that the figures are not too bold, but distinct
    nonetheless, and you did a wonderful job getting
    these models to pose for you πŸ˜‰

    Hey I was kidding about that
    Doron, or was I right all along? πŸ˜‰

    Great work my friend and
    awesome use of the palette


    1. Andro… you should visit my other blog for portraits and life.. You are not far wrong what artist would be an artist without a knife work.. there is a link to it… life and portraits. I am also working on it and I improve day by day.. I could not afford them both that day so I asked the one to lay slighty further away.. conservation.. wait till I start moulding in chocolate πŸ™‚

      1. I think the moulding in chocolate needs a steady hand and models
        that appreciate the artist’s touch, after all we need to feel our way to
        perfection, and models with chocolate spread onto their skin needs
        a lot of attention, especially in the removing of same as there is only
        kisses and a few licks to consider, well that’s if the models don’t mind
        of course? πŸ™‚ lol

        I will check out your link and add some feedback my wicked friend πŸ™‚


        1. What do you mean steady hands… knife work… Andro my man we talking chocolate moulding never used anything by my tounge here.. Ho sorry got carried away.. you mean in my painting… yes deffinate palette knifes here… could not taste that chocolaty oils paints…. One thing I agree it needs some great attention….that is why they call it ‘Art’.. Thanks for making me laugh my friend. Sorry for late replies mate but sometime… I am not that well.. or probably giving it too much attention.. you are always welcome..:-)
