THREE'S COMPANY, 9106, textured palette knife still life © Carol Nelson Fine Art



I am having fun with these palette knife paintings. The unique texture created by a knife is so pure - you are literally looking at a slice of pure pigment. This is not to say I don't mix the paints out of the tube - I do, but when I have mixed the desired color mixture, it is applied directly. The result is a passage without a lot of blending of colors into each other.
I took a lot of liberties with the colors in these pears. Pears come in a lot of colors although the turquoise may be a bit of an exaggeration.

Thanks for the comment on my blog re the DSFDF piece Carol. Dive on in, the water's fine! Can't wait to see what you do with it.

I really love your abstract pieces, you have a wonderful sense of balance and design.

Good luck with the challenge!

I don't know how you get so much texture while preserving the intensity of the color - really hard to do - these look great.

These pears are fabulous, Carol. You get such amazing texture into your paintings. And the turquoise is perfect. I love it when an artist takes liberty with colour. I almost never paint anything the colour it should be.
