Acrylic on board 16cm x 16cm
Mostly palette knife
I was SO thrilled with the outcome of this one. I practically had to tie my arms down to guard against adding more detail and spoiling the lovely unprecedented looseness I had achieved. The palette knife is such a wonderful tool for enforcing a looser style - something I find very hard to do normally.
I painted from a photo I took around 26 years ago when visiting the old farm where I had spent my childhood. Several old decrepit cars were still quietly rusting away in the car graveyard near the shed where Dad had left them many years earlier.
