I been trying to figure out the steps for doing a palette knife painting that I like. First, I do an underpainting emphasizing the darks. Then I go over that with a palette knife letting some of the underpainting show through. I think it would be interesting to use complementary colors in the underpainting which I am going to try today.
Here is my recent palette knife painting. I like the way the underpainting shows through.
(I done this before and try something new every time.)
A lot of palette knife work used here.
