Dandy Daisies

12"x12" oil on gessobord

This was actually finished right before Christmas. I'm taking some of those small florals ever larger. I'm really loving working on the gessobord, but I know when I go to the super large paintings, I find it better to work on canvas. The panels get extremely heavy at that size. So I do go back and forth with surfaces, I have several that I like to work on for a few different reasons.   I'm finding a greater comfort zone combining brushes with my palette knife ALL sizes that I work in, from tiny to enormous.

I was wondering if you had used brushes on this and you answered in your post. It's wonderful, Roxanne!!

Thanks Diane! I used the brushes with the transparent under painting, and brought the knife in for thicker opaque layers on top. I'm liking the depth that seems to bring to the appearance.
