sky rocks ocean by molly g

sky rocks ocean

Acrilyc on canvas, 16 x 20 inches. Painted with pallette knives. Brushes make me want to be realistic and I don't have the patience or precision so using pallette knives frees me from that. Inspired by scene on Cape Cod.

Thanks for having taken the time to comment. I would be interested in knowing whether you have you tried painting with just pallette knives. I know unless my subject is really loose and uncomplicated, as soon as I pick up a brush, I get tense because I want everything to be detailed and realistic.

Hi JC

Thanks for looking at this piece, I appreciate your comments. I do enjoy working with knives. It's sort of liberating for me because with brushes I try to be precise and it's not really in me to be that way. One of the things that I admire about your work is the beautiful detail.

Fabulous, you caught the scene well. I understand , your feelings about the brushes. I always need to put a piece aside before I start to overwork it. You did a great piece.

Really gorgeous work, which gives the feel of a watercolour, although I know it is acrylic! Lovely tones.

for molly g
molly gAfter many years of painting I have come to realize that the thing that interests me most is colour. If I create something that enables the viewer to separate from reality and indulge in shear pleasure by colour and form then I am happy.

Is this a portrait or a character study? Would you buy this painting despite the fact that it is of somebody you do not know?
Brilliant Painting! I would say both portrait as well as character study. I would definitely buy it. My paintings are mainly bought by people who do not know... view answer
