Impasto is Italian for "paste." I create these paintings with Liquin impasto medium and they are painted with either a palette knife or with a mylar cone filled with paint, or both. I will eventually be linking these to my Etsy shop when I get it up and running, because one picture really doesn't do them justice... it's all about the texture.
11 x 14 knife-painted, textured impasto. I painted the edges with great care on this one so it's optional to frame it. This is a Metroparks castle where I often played as a child. If you'd like to read more about the castle and see the in-progress photos, visit its WIP page.
These are done with a technique of my own devising. I use a cellophane henna cone and thickened paint to pipe designs (think cake decorating, sort of) onto a prepainted canvas. Each one of these comes with a little display easel, unless otherwise specified. They can also be framed (I'm hoping to find some miniature frames to offer for sale here).
