Abstract Painting - Susan's Knife Painting Tips



Another painting, they're falling over and tripping me! This one (far left) is titled "Running and Not Stopping"; it looks breathless and hopeful to me. I hope it pricks your imagination, that's the idea! You can see it on my etsy store and if you'd like to get a pdf of my knife painting tips just click on the link (the one you just passed). You can see a thumbnail of the notes above. It's a real blast of fun and inspiration to pick up a painting knife, try it!


I've got to stop. I crochet at night and paint by day, truly a tormented, obsessed but happy person who always has paint on her nose. I do teach oil and watercolor....so contact me if you'd like to know more. And I also design and sell crochet patterns, it's my hobby, while painting is my obsession. You can see more about my art at susankennedy.com

This is one I'm pretty happy with....we've been working on knife painting in my abstract class and it's stretched me to use up TONS and tons of paint in the quest to master the knife! I hope to post a little bit of my curriculum here; if you're interested, let me know.

This painting seemed like a humble view of a lofty scene, it looks different every time I look at it; which I suppose is a part of viewing abstracts. It's listed on etsy, you can see it here.
