Palette 1 was my first experience with a palette knife. It was a lot of fun, but harder than I was expecting it to be. Also although I normally paint abstracts this one's a little different as it has no distinguishable form or figure to it. For some reason this kind of unstructured art has been grabbing at me lately so I feel pretty happy that I was able to compose an unstructured abstract piece myself.
Palette 1 took me about 2 weeks to complete including drying time in between layers. While I painted I listened to The Yokota Officers Club by Sarah Bird which if you're into hearing about memories and dreams over and over again I would recommend the book.. But despite her fantastic descriptions and creatively worded phrases I was not so into the content, though I was glad to discover Sarah Bird as a writer.
Hope you enjoy my painting, thanks for visiting my blog! ;)
