Lush by Kay Wyne

12" x 24" Oil on Heavy Duty Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Palette Knife Painting
I painted this abstract landscape yesterday in the studio, starting with a canvas that was half completed.  It was five cowgirls sitting on the back-end of a pick up truck.  I had lost my interest in the painting, so I grabbed a palette knife and started covering the canvas.  Some of the color on the original painting peeks through the layers of paint...making it interesting and giving it depth.
Close-up of the knife work.  Lots of loose knife action, giving the canvas texture.    I painted the sides of the canvas Vulcan Grey, so framing is optional.  Contact Kay Wyne for more information on this painting or any of my other canvases.  Thanks, KMW
