Stretching is Good

I'm currently working on interpreting a favorite subject in new and different ways.
Twilight 12 x 9 oil
For this one,
I focussed on texture; applying the paint in thin layers, letting them dry in between.
This is new territory for me.
I've been teaching the
"big strokes, lots of paint" approach for years.

Thistle Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, SOLD
24 days ago - By Carol Schiff Studio
This small oil painting is a tribute to thistles. The lowly thistle, thought to be a weed, in my eyes, a brilliant floral beauty.
I photographed this thistle while taking a summer walk in the valley. Armed with my image, I painted it in oil, with lots of texture to suggest the spikey flower. Some of the texture comes from my use of the palette knife, and some of it was applied direct to the canvas. The sides of the canvas are finished, allowing it to be hung with or without a frame.
This is a picture of me, doing my favorite thing!
