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.

Love the way you have created this painting as I find it allows your imagination to place its own definition of the rocks ,sky and sea.

So loose, I feel the movement in the water. What a wonderful way to paint! Work larger and it will really showcase style.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate your mentionning the movement in the water as I wasn't sure exactly how it came to be but I thought that the effect was interesting.

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.

I like the muted effect. Another piece I'd like to see in person to get a look at the texturing. Well done.

Hi DJ

Thanks for your comment. I also find that I would love to see a lot of the paintings "for real" because I think a lot is lost in photos.

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.

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.
