Cobalt and Pink, palette knife oil painting

As I mentioned yesterday, it's starting to feel a bit like autumn! Very cool in the mornings, refreshing. However, the garden is starting to lose some of its color impact on me. The butterfly bush that's quite the attraction to not only butterflies, but also hummingbirds, is still blooming is lovely purple blooms and one can still see some cosmos around, but the rest of the yard is showing golden yellows with rudbeckia and coreopsis being the main culprits there.

So what am I getting at with this blog? I love the color combination of cobalt blue and hot pinks and about a year ago I applied these colors to the canvas with only palette knives. Talk about tricky! One can get a lot of texture and dimension with these knives. However, painting flowers with them solely was difficult (and yet fun). Here you see the results. One of the last bouquets of summer, harvested onto canvas.
