Passion for Roses

Passion for Roses
8 x 8 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
Did a little experimenting here. Lightly sanded down an old oil painting then repainted it to get a sense of how it would look if done with a palette knife. I do like the energy, irregularity and the texture the knife adds, particularly on the leaves. But for me at least, I think there is a tradeoff on the softness of the flowers themselves that is more effectively communicated with a soft brush. Still experimenting though, so will give it some further tries.
