This is another study in the use of the knife - I just love how you can push paint all over the place!

Ev, Alex, Sketch - Thanks so much. This is an on-going series, I guess, where I practice the diff tools. It seems easiest for me to do landscapes, and that affords me the luxury of experimentation.

Wow that is so nicely wet. Makes me long for a good pair of wellington boots and a stout walking stick. :D

I just love how you push that paint around, too, Skylar! This is just beautiful and you did the water just fantastically!

The sky colors and the hints of shadow colors give me the feel of surrealism. The ripples feel exactly right; most would have made them (mistakenly) horizontal.

The basic painting is simple - I laid out globs and streaks of colors for the water, being careful to leave white showing in many places, then used the knife to spread and smear - going thru those white areas which turn into the highlight in the water.

Wow, I'm so impressed with your feed backs. Thank you all so much. This really was a little study to use the knife tool (Mostly Hard out smear). Maybe I should do a step by step?
