Kiwi Delight - acrylic palette knife still life painting of a kiwi by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski

"Kiwi Delight"
8" x 10"
Acrylic on canvas
Palette knife

This painting was done for Lela Stankovic's challenge on Paint and Draw Together Blogspot. It was quite a challenge using just the knife. I used a sculpting compound in my acrylic paint in an attempt to get some of the texture of the kiwi and the juiciness of the flesh. If you have any questions about this painting or wish to purchase, contact PAT.

I think even though it was a challenge to use just the knife, it looks like it was worth it, if you agree?

Thanks, Igloo for your visit and comment. I had an instructor who said people like to see the struggle that goes into a painting. Maybe that "struggle" helped. lol
