A painting of an old lady, sitting in a chair 6x4 ins, oil on board. The figure was painted mostly with a palette knife and the the background with brush strokes. The photo could be better alas. I always start out to paint in oil with brushes, intending to complete the painting with brushes only.  The temptation for me to pick up the palette knife, at times becomes too great, especially, if I want to do a bit of blending, or just put pure colour in place. That is the case here.  I just love texture in oil painting.
