Red Dish Red Shaker

"Red Dish Red Shaker", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
This painting was an experiment with both brush and palette knife.  It is easier for me to get clear color with a palette knife at least partly because mixing it on the palette is more methodical. Its a lot easier to space out when using a brush.

Purchase this unframed painting.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.


  1. Kathryn, I like the different textures you got using both brush and knife. Colors are just the best. Favorite- the red reflections on the spoon! I have a thing for these spoons- they are wonderful! Haha:)

  2. I love what your are doing with the palette knife, and this painting with the combination is great! I think we had a red dish just like that when I was growing up. I think they came in several sizes and each one was a different color.

  3. Kathy and Claudia--thanks for your comments! When I go down to the local antique co-op, there are so many of those types of dishes in all shapes, sizes and colors. I like their translucency!
