Playing with some low relief textures. If you want a perfectly smooth application of the primer (gesso) a brush is a better choice. To get some interesting textures in the surface a knife is always fun. I use palette knives constantly for everything.
An experimental painting from last May. Something I intended to follow further. One of the benefits of looking through past work, a reminder of exploration yet to do.
Three small paintings I did in preparation for the large commission I recently finished. These were a bit of an experiment with materials. For the final commission I stuck with acrylics but there are interesting roads to explore here.
