Painting: Torch

Torch, acrylic on 16″ x 20″ canvas, July 1, 2012

Saturday I took a one day painting class — “Paint and Palette Knife”.  It was a workshop on, as the title may suggest, painting with palette knives.  This is the second painting I started in the workshop, but the first I finished.  You may have guessed — this was painted entirely with one palette knife.  And that’s cadmium yellow light and florescent orange — not brown.  The photo doesn’t do it justice.

  1. I really can’t decide which angle I like most! Your Torch / Comet illuminates this landscape beautifully.

    • Thank you! Yeah, it did become a landscape didn’t it? That’s something I seem to do. Seems if I don’t have a strong visual look I’m going for, my non-representational abstracts become abstract landscapes, without even trying… It’s weird.

    These colors are great, regardless of how poorly these photos render them.

  3. very cool. i like the one with the torch coming up from the bottom best.

  4. Aren’t palette knives fun? You have a great handle on them. I love the textures of this piece. Well done!
