I am learning that painting on a small surface is more complicated than I first smirked at (shame on me)! Throw in trying to ONLY use a palate knife and new subjects sounds like a trip to the beach, yeah right.
One issue is how to paint comfortably this tiny square? I end up holding it in my hands most of the time, I haven't quite found a good angle to get at it when it's on my easel. Oh and my choice of the very detailed subjects - maybe I should leave those to larger surfaces or embrace my new "art wrinkles" that are sure to be forming.
I am stretching myself and that is my goal. The feedback I am receiving from friends old & new from Facebook and elsewhere really makes my heart smile. Art is my joy.
Off to find some colors!
