Tulips or Rose Buds?  11 x 14 Inch Oil Painting

This is another attempt at using a knife that was too big for the size of flowers I was painting.  The good news is that I got a plethora of new painting knives and they came in yesterday!!!!  My hope is that if I can use a complete sweep with an appropriate sized knife I can paint not only cleaner, but faster!  This painting was a pain!

Rose Buds for the Kitchen 11 x 14 inch Oil Painting

Out with the old…in with the rose buds.  A bakers dozen!  This is the first painting where I used a painting knife on such a small canvas for more than just the background or blending or larger sweeps.  It was not easy.  I only had  larger knives.  Larger than the flowers so I had to finagle and make due.  After this painting, I took the opportunity to buy me a bunch of knives in lots of shapes and sizes.  The next time should go much smoother.
