MARY JANES


My Mary Jane pallet knife painting taught me to simplify and summarize. It was frustrating to have to paint everything with a plastic surface, but it forced me to find the most important color. What was vital I painted, but it was almost impossible to paint every detail that a paint brush permits. I am happy with my first pallet knife painting; it is a good start and foundation for my future paintings.
