Sunset Strokes

I've been teaching some different techniques for using palette knives in painting class, and this seascape is our theme du jour.  I like to under paint my whole composition thinly, then come over the top of it with thick, juicy strokes using a knife.  For large areas like the sky, I like the long, flat, rounded end knife.  I can sweep the knife across the surface like icing a cake.  I use a smaller, pie shaped knife for cutting in the rocks. SO fun to play in the paint!  Painting number 1881 in 1881 days.
