Got Milk?, Acrylic palette knife representational cow painting by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski

"Got Milk?"
8" x 10"
Acrylic on canvas
Palette Knife

This painting was done entirely with a palette knife. I made a sculpting compound using clear gesso and pumice which I used to mix with my paint. The clear gesso worked well, in that it didn't alter the color of the paint. There were some areas that became challenging eg eyes. If you have any questions, or wish to purchase, contact PAT.
