After five hours of non-stop painting in oil with my palette knife, I know again how enjoyable and exciting it is! This is a total knife painting, no brushes. I am becoming intrigued with the beautiful colours and textures that can be obtained with a knife. I believe my knife tecniques will develop through trial and error.
This is a painting of a river somewhere in Africa, it could be in the Drakensberg or in the Cape province, the choice is yours!
I dedicate this painting to all art lovers! ;-)

    Die Palmietrivier wat tussen die berge deur kronkel van Grabouw tot by Kogelberg waar hy by Kleinmond in die see uitmond!!
    Laaiza, hierdie is vir my een van jou allerbeste paletmes skilderye – werklik besonder mooi en goed gedoen. Hy lei die oog absoluut na die middelpunt toe, sodat jy die volle prent kan geniet!
    Well done!!

  • Toetentaal mal oor jou aanmoediging Pieta! Baie dankie!!
