This is the second day on this painting for the Mill Valley Depot show, September 1st. I've had a postcard from MALT painter, Dana Hooper, sitting on my dresser since the May show. She paints with a palette knife which produces thick swatches of paint and a more painterly feel. For some reason, I was inspired to paint this cyclist with a knife today. More details to come, but I think I like the contrast of the foreground texture with the smoothness of the background. I used to paint more like this in college.
