Midnight 12"x16"

My latest experiment in painting. This time with a palette knife and paint brushes. For the sky I used a palette knife and did sweeping arcs. For the trees I used the tips of a brush and dabbed the paint down much the same as I would do stippling, and for the grass I used the edge of a flat brush, dry tipped and "pulled" the paint down off the canvas.
I had fun with this one though trying to take a decent photo was extremely difficult with the glare. I don't want it to lose its vibrancy, but might have to spray it with a coat of matte varnish - or paint with a flat black.
Back to the canvas!
