Happy Accident

This is one of the first palette knife paintings I did and it was out of frustration. I had been trying to capture the contrast between the valley of the mountains and the sky. It was very dramatic in the photo and I could not seem to show that in the painting.  Out of frustration I scraped the whole painting and liked what was left. Adding texture and contrast seemed so much easier with a palette knife than with the brush.  I really like the feeling of this painting
