Oil with a palette knife on Blick Studio Artist Board
Samara saw my painting called "New Yorkie" and asked if I could do a similar portrait of her dog Dexter. Pets are such fun to paint with a palette knife, especially the fur and those ears! Can you even? I always hope to capture the animals personality even if I never actually meet them. I think you can probably tell that Dexter certainly has a lot of personality!
is an award winning artist who paints exclusively with a palette knife. She holds a fine art degree and has worked as a professional graphic designer for many years. She began painting in oil again after taking a palette knife workshop through the Copley Society of Art in Boston and was immediately hooked. The thick, painterly, yet highly detailed strokes of color are trademarks of her style.
