This is one of my favorite paintings I've done so far, it's fresh off the easel and the size is 20x24, oil on panel. I did the majority of this painting with a knife as well, just like the last painting but this one is much more successful. I have really been working on moving between soft and hard edges and describing objects in the most basic way possible. The mountains in the background are a good example of this. Just a series of strokes with the knife and you have a mountain. I love that! I love seeing progression as well, this painting is a huge step up from the last painting I posted and they were painted a week apart. That's a confidence booster for sure.
