Sharp Stepper-Inishmor Rooster, Ireland-palette knife painting- SOLD

8"x10" oil on linen mounted on archival board (Raymar)

"Men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed."
- Lloyd Jones

Back to the chickens with knives! Palette knives that is. I find it difficult to paint very small with the going up just a little bigger allows a little elbow room to manipulate some paint. Drop the details- focus on the values. This is the same little fellow that I posted a smaller version (done with a brush) yesterday. One tool is not any 'better' than the other - it's just a tool- and what you do with it is the important part!

This painting will be for sale from my Daily Painters Gallery.
