A Little More Knife

This weekend I was out painting near the Prallsville Mills again. Instead of painting the mill, this time I was looking down-river towards the bridge between Stockton, NJ and Center Bridge, Pa:

"Stockton Bridge"
8x10 oil on panel

This painting was another exercise in knife work but a bit more selectively - most of the painting is my usual brushwork, but I used the palette knife extensively in the water:

The palette knife also came in handy for the bridge - it's an 8x10 inch painting so the bridge was very tiny. I painted it by getting a thin bead of paint on the edge of the knife, then just lightly touching it to the painting. It took a very steady hand, but I don't think I could have done this as easily with a brush.
