Without Leaves

"Without Leaves" 16" x 20" 
Acrylic on gessoed panel
I maundered through a forest so captivating and magical I didn't realize until I got home that there were no leaves.  

The first time I used a palette knife I made a mess. I thought "peanut butter and jelly" instead of marks.  This was an exercise in linear marks on a sponged background.  I used fluid paints, so the actual tactile texture is smooth.  It's the same palette of colors as yesterday's piece, too.
