Botanical paintings using Palette Knife
Using a palette knife here are a few mini’s – inspired by all the beautiful floral arrangements that arrived from friends congratulating my husband and I, on the arrival of our beautiful daughter Annika Lauren Kendrick, born Oct 1st, 2014. Thank you so much for all the wonderful cards and messages….. we are full of gratitude.
With the mini paintings its easy to play with scale and placement…try a few oil sketches before painting a large canvas. With these I kept the background the neutral as the flowers were so colorful but sometimes its important to change it up finding a combination that works well.
