After painting so many mini’s on gessobord panels, I decided to give a bigger size gessobord a try.
Although Waimea Bay on Oahu’s North Shore is known for it’s giant winter surf, in the summer months, you can find the bay looking more like a lake.

"Summer Day At The Bay"
is a 12” x 24” palette knife painting.
Here are some close-ups.
Painting on smooth gessobord is much different for me, using a palette knife, than stretched canvas. I like some of the effects it gives you. It's easier to get detail without the texture of the canvas, and the colors seem to pop, but it sure is slippery!
Mahalo for taking the time to view my artwork.
ALOHA FROM HAWAII !
