This is one of my favorite ways to paint. Completing a painting with just a palette knife takes less time than with a brush. The palette knife provides me with more freedom to express my impression of the image I'm painting. Thick layers of paint, often mixed on the canvas, gives these paintings tremendous depth to the point of looking 3-dimensional. The thicker the paint the longer it takes to dry so at times I have to wait up to a month for these paintings to dry before doing the finishing details. I often have up to four paintings in progress at one time. I teach this technique to my more advanced students. It's more difficult to control a palette knife than a brush.
