Sunny House

Here's a small knife painting I did today. This one is for the June Virtual Paintout. I always forget how much I enjoy painting small with the knives. I'll be repainting a couple from the State Series to replace those that sold recently. Just shipped 49 of the Series out today to a wonderful client. When these last two dry they'll be going to the same destination. (Yes, I know the US has 50, but I threw DC in for good measure.)

Love the sunny yellow house - great knife work. Ah, but where is this? Where is the VP going in June?

Lovely colors and with just a knife you have really captured the atmosphere perfectly.

I'm normally not too fond of knife painting, I guess 'cause it's usually rather monotonous, stroke-wise. Not so with this one.

You managed to get a lot of varied strokes where it's not even readily apparent that it's a knife painting. Kudos!
And the sunny effect is great.

Fine kick-off to New Zealand.
