Palette Knife expression of Beach Landscape

"Tide Rising" is drying as we speak. It is 40x30" and because palette knife expressions require layers of thick paint, it takes a lot longer to dry. WHile painting it, I have to step back a lot to analyze and see what areas needed to be layered with complimentary hues and paint pastels. I usually use a flat palette so I can load up the various mixed pastels onto the knives and lightly wipe each layer over the previous dried layers. This way the colors don't get muddy. linda-olsen.artistwebsites.com
