Sunflowers II - Acrylic Impressionistic Palette Knife Plein Aire Painting by Pennsylvania Artist Pat Koscienski
8" x 10"
Acrylic on 300 lb watercolor paper
This painting was started plein air at Ashcombe's Farm in Mechanicsburg this summer. We painted 2 days in their sunflower fields. This was day 2 and the sun was shining, very unlike day 1 which was overcast. It was near the end of the season for these flowers; their heads were large and heavy, and they struggled to lift them for the sun that was shining on them. I used a palette knife on rough 300 lb watercolor paper. It was neat to get some of those tiny effects when the knife scumbled over the rough paper. This painting will fit into a standard 8x10 frame, or can be matted and framed to a larger size.
