Thick strokes of oil are built up on the canvas creating texture. The palette knife was much tool of choice on this painting. I had to be careful not to mix up the colors once I put paint on the canvas...I could of easily created mud. I was able to let the bold colors bounce off of each other.

Painted on a heavy-duty 2 1/2" thick gallery wrap canvas, this rooster is looking for a new home. As you can see in this pic, the sides are painted and a frame is not necessary.
Through out most of the painting, the paint was applied with thick, bold strokes with the palette knife. The application of paint created texture on the canvas. This contemporary rooster was named Big Guy because of his imposing stance. The rooster is bold and bossy, and would be a conversation starter in any room. Contact Kay with any questions or comments.

I couldn't help but go bright and bold on this palette knife painting. I was tired of the pale greens, corals and pinks that I had been painting with. I needed a change-up, and it was in the color. Very abstract, although you can see the landscape, horizon line and the sky. Lots of texture also. Thanks for looking at this blog....Contact ME for more information. Kay
I was painting a floral landscape yesterday, and had started this little panel, and added some dark greens and violets, giving it more depth and interest. In this still life, the little jar is holding three flowers...very simple. The palette knife gives it some texture. Contact Kay
This is a good looking short-horn was at the LBJ Ranch, and I loved the way the left ear was perked up as if he was listening to our conversation. I have had this Hereford sitting on my easel for a month or so...I think I am finished with it. Here is a close up of the right ear:
I really liked the way the ear turned out...actually it is my favorite part about this painting! I will let this one dry in the studio, and maybe make a few modifications here and there, but I signed it, and it is pretty much finished. I don't know what I will be working on tomorrow, but as you can see the month of January is coming to an end....only five more posts on the challenge!
