Jert Palette Knife Extravaganza!
This is a painting I did last week at the ISCA convention of my pal Jert. Jert is one of the coolest guys I've met. I love this guy, super funny, great artist, good taste in music, and just an all in all good guy! He did a great drawing of me last year, one of the best likenesses of me and by far the funniest! So this year I wanted to do a painting of him . . . it was a bit challenging, because Jert has been drawn by everyone, so it was hard to come up with something new. So I decided to do something I've always wanted to try and that was painting with a palette knife. I blocked the painting in with brushes and then finished it off with a palette knife. It was a fun experiment, and I'd definitely like to experiment with that technique a lot more . . . develop it a bit more.
