Hydrangea Burst

Hydrangea Burst
8 x 10 oil painting
by Pat Fiorello
Been experimenting lately with using palette knives for painting. I am enjoying the energy and texture they help me achieve. I'd been working on that technique mainly with sunflowers so far, so decided to try it with hydrangeas.

 This one was done with palette knives on gessoboard (which is a very slick surface).  Between the smoothness of the metal knives, the slipperiness of oil paints and the smooth surface of the gessoboard, things are slipping and sliding very fast. But the energy of that is really fun.  I titled this painting "Hydrangea Burst"- it seems to be bursting with the energy and movement it was painted with.
