Palette Knife Sketch

Sketches are so much fun! I love doodling around and figuring out new compositions for future paintings. This sketch was painted on a xerox copy of one of my palettes. I used the existing shapes formed by my scraping of paint around on the palette and this little creature emerged. I don’t think I’ll be doing a large scale painting of this sketch, but it was a fun experiment. I highly recommend using your old used palette paper to sketch on. This concept is sort of like a painters version of the scribble game where you scribble lines onto a page and then try to pick out an image.
