I love knife painting!
A year ago, I had to do a painting with this style for my art class and i fell in love inmediately with it! I love how, at first glance, you can see a perfectly formed figure or landscape, but when you get closer to the painting, you can see ( and feel ) every single stroke and detail in it. Besides, it’s such a fun way to paint!
Background is Summer Downpour by Leonid Afremov, my favourite knife painting artist.
