I have been watching videos for palette knife painting (http://www.painting-with-a-palette-knife.com) and wanted to experiment since a while now. Yesterday finally I did it with little success. Clearly a regular acrylic paper is not good enough for palette knives. My next attempt would mostly be on a proper canvas or a wooden board. Anyway, I started first with the tulips, trying to paint from a card my friend Aditi sent me last spring with a picture of tulips from her backyard. The paint wouldn't stay on paper and hence the smudgy output. I then tried something where I could use some strokes and use up the excess color :D, and so the martini glasses. Hopefully my next attempt with a palette knife will be much better.
