I’ll never tire of watching the waves at Gloucester’s back shore. These three “minis” were the result of some stormy weather intersecting with my palette knife. So much fun! And a useful project while waiting for the base layer on two new, large paintings to dry.

Technical painting notes: All three paintings are on rag paper with a shellac primer. I used Winsor Newton’s Liquin Impasto and Liquin original for the medium – lots of liquin original. I wanted the paint to have lots of body so I could apply it with the knife, but I also wanted fluidity so it would emulate the liquid I was painting – waves.

  1. Very sculptural, almost architectural, but full of movement. How difficult that must be – and you have captured it in such a few movements. Excellent!
