I just love pushing paint around with a palette knife. It's such a different experience than using a brush. Colors blend on the canvas differently in marbelized swirls, and while too much mixing and swirling can quickly create mud a deft hand can create some really sophisticated color combinations. The texture's great and the edges varied which adds to the paintings overall appeal.

Tomorrow I'll be going top the MOMA to see the Van Gogh and the colors of the Night exhibit, can't wait, I'll be sure to post a review of the show and blog about the day!

Thanks! The transparent red oxide under painting and the vermillion mixed with ultramarine blue and plenty of white gets that bright overcast look in the sky, whihc is pretty typical for around here.
