Low Tide, Playing with the Palette Knife

Low Tide, oil on canvas, 16x20in, $1000
Been working very hard to try to marry my aggressive impasto, brushwork and knifework from the studio into the open air. I set up my Glouchester style easel and used a handheld palette and palette knife to see how quickly I could turn out a 16x20. I want to work larger outdoors but also want it to look more like what I do in the studio. I don't want to spend hours upon hours outdoors working on a large piece, I want to rock it out in a couple hours and be done with it. We will see how it works...
