Pretty Facade - Oil on Canvas Board 14x 18''

A painting done entirely by palette knives. This one is a big sized one and took me more than a month, as I wasn't so much into painting for some time in between.
It is done from a snap of the facade of a house of a friend and I juxtaposed warm and cool colours, while trying to keep the essence of her house.
It was a difficult assignment, self imposed no doubt , but doing geometrical structures with knives was the challenge and it was a good change.
Meanwhile my brushes aren't too happy that i have simply abandoned them and lie in different stages of uncleaned state. Maybe I will pick them up and do something with brushes next. Knives are great but my paints are fast disappearing from my stock!
