Even the cows were on strike today. This morning driving to the studio it rained the umpteenth time. The cows had given up and were sitting in huddled groups in the wet fields. Though the day started wet and cold, my studio time flew by. I am working on an assignment due Monday for grad school and picked a cityscape. In this painting, I am experimenting with a palette knife and am working super thick. The results are exciting but defiantly a longer process. This is the first stage from last week. Tomorrow I will post the finished piece.
