Georgetown Square II

Georgetown Square II, 20 x 16
SOLD

Here is the final result of the pallet knife start. I do like the freedom pallet knife painting practically imposes on you. Like plein air painting, you end up focusing on the main shapes, values and color. The better you do that, the less relevant fine detail seems to become.

That is fabulous. There's such a feeling of spontaneity to it, and energy. Appreciate seeing the blocking in, it always looks so easy when it's shown step-by-step! LOL.

Really wonderful. I like how the light leads you in and there is just enough shifts in the darker shadow part to hold your interest. Great perspective- love that tree in the front against the tree in the back. So much to see:)
