This was my first time to paint Plein Air on a house boat.
Here are my latest abstract explorations with Acrylic paint, palette knives and 6×6 and the last a 8×8 gallery wrap canvases.
While “Sheltering in Place” I felt like venturing into a more playful state of painting! I got out my palette knives and loaded my palette, and mixed my favorite colors, and spread paint like frosting to my heart’s content!

More to come!
I was cleaning my palette to start fresh, but it had one last landscape to deliver. This was taken after I had soaked it in water and poured it out. I did let it dry to see if it could be salvaged but the film was too weak. I did get a nice photo though.
One could create a landscape in this manner without adding water. 😉
Here is the whole palette.
This palette knife painting represents a rose from memory. In the BEFORE version I was satisfied with the composition, but not the colors I don’t know why I use the dull brown. Anyway, I looked at it today by chance, and thought I want to fix this. The texture has a bit different effect covering over the top of existing texture but I’m glad I went for it! I may try this again from scratch sometime.
