Lisa ElleyPeonies in the Wild
I love a classic floral painting, and here is one of mine done entirely with the palette knife, which gives it amazing thick impasto texture.
About the Artist
Working almost exclusively with a palette knife, Lisa Elley maneuvers her artistic blade with an uncanny fluidity. Why paint only with the knife? She says, when I paint with a brush, which I do occasionally, I tend to focus on the detail. With a palette knife I can't focus on the detail too much, so my paintings are looser, and more gestural, with bigger sweeps and strokes. This technique is called wet-on-wet. And it seems to be quite popular, as she has been bestowed the title Knife Queen by her facebook fans. Fun fact: Lisa;s high school art teacher told her to study harder at math, as a career in art was impossible.
