Enjoyed painting this view of Little River in Waterbury VT earlier in the summer. I had to work fast with the light changing and a few pesky mosquitos after me. So I decided to just use a palette knife and go at it. Palette knife painting appeals to me on many levels because I can get very clean color, very tactile surfaces, and the surface is reflective due to light playing off the ridges of paint. Setting aside my paint brush down now and then is liberating and fun.
