Lovely ^_^ I like how the brush strokes ( or more accurately palette knive strokes XD ) make my eyes travel throughout the painting & they also give a sense depth to the piece. I feel especially drawn to the three green & yellow focal points, they seem as if they're pulsateing with energy. The only thing I feel is out of place in it is the maroon splotch near the top. It doesn't flow with the rest of the colors. Just my personal opinion though, perphaps that is how you meant to protray it. All together this an admirable abstract work ^_^ I really like it!

Glad you like it! The maroon splotch is way less obvious in real life...Im afraid the camera used for this image was less than adequate.

This is a cool effect, did you use pallet knives or is that all brush work?

This was made using a mix of palette knives and masonry tools.

I was pleased with the outcome of this piece. It was something a little different then usual due in part to new materials and tools.

Really? It looks smooth like oils would. I'm more partial to acrylics.

gasp! love it! that, i guess i'd call it teal, color is gorgeous. do you mix your colors haphazardly (like i do) or do you mix specific things looking for specific colors?

i have a fantastic time with palette knives! i have sooo many, more than anyone could ever need. sometimes i think if i had to choose between brushes and palette knives, i'd choose the knives. i like to use them with great gobs of paint. i'm all about texture when i'm painting. lol! is this oil?

Im glad you like it! And as far color mixing goes, i keep mixing till i get something cool lol.

When it comes to knives....i have a few (6) but i paint with whatever is around, whether it is masonry tools, paper, scrapers and of course cutlery (my favorite. I rarely use brushes.

yes! painting with all kinds of weird stuff is the best! i don't have a place where i can be really messy, but i would like to try putting paint in a spray bottle and see how that works out.

someone was just telling me to try mixing salt into watercolors, on very wet paper. i'm going to try that one for sure!

i poke around and find interesting things to mess around with in my husbands wood working shop.

cool!

Salt and water colors create a most interesting effect. I highly recommend trying it.
