Palette Knife Painting by Chris Hobel 8x8" on box canvas.
Im looking forward to attending an oil painting workshop this weekend with Colley Whisson, a popular Australian Impressionist Painter from just north of Brisbane Queensland.
I notice his classes in the US are full and Ive said to myself for a long time..Im gunna do a colley workshop soon... Luckily for me its only about an hours drive. I painted this a while back but I have been very slack with blogging over recent times due to our summer heat and all the depressing news, floods, cyclones and fire.. I dont like to use the Air con as the contrast when I leave the studio is too much to take.
Today has been much cooler and Ive painted two 8x8" oil paintings so that tells me something. The big shape of the shadow took my attention .This area is part of the flood plain of the mary river and Im sure it has been flooded recently.
