Isn't it :) although it is much better looking that the Chinese canvas prints they sell in Ikea :D And I am always amazed at how people think those things are actually done by hand in oil :D :D

That's interesting :) My concept was that there is a girl at the end of the alley who is walking away and also in the bottom corner a man who has to walk the other way. The atmosphere is pretty infernal though :)

PS Thanks so much for the other favs and the watch :)

Thank you so much! Palette knives aren't easier or harder to use than any other painting method... I think it is practice and what suits you best :) I find myself making more mistakes with brushes than with knives, which I too find odd :)

Oh, not at all. It's a lovely piece of artwork c:

aha yes I totally agree. practice. practice.
Perhaps I found it difficult for my first time because the knife felt foreign to me...well, compared to brushes that is.
Did you use different sizes/types of knives for this piece?
I was limited to only one knife back then, aha
(I'm sure there are many out there who can do a lot with just one knife :D)

Only one knife was used for the whole thing... although the description may be misleading :) I did use a soft rag and some fingerwork :D Knives, just like brushes, are very versatile - the edge can do very precise lines (such as the ones in the heart area of the silhouette in the bottom left-hand side corner). Also, varying the amount of paint, angle and pressure applied you can do very different shapes and textures.

I do think that whether brushes, knives, pastel, pencil or whatever feel natural comes mainly from one's personal inclination towards the medium, but practice and experience greatly help :) The first time I painted with knives it felt like some sort of enlightenment (wow)
