A demonstration for the wednesday class. This is a mainly palette knife painting, in oils on board.
First, I thinly washed some colour over the whole board, wiped off excess wetness and began the process of colour mixing and placing oil paint in slabs. There are a few bits of brushwork here. Also some sgraffito with a kebab skewer for the twiggy effects.
My idea for the group was to show that subject matter for painting need not be the obviously dramatic or typical viewpoint.
