A gorgeous large original oil painting featuring a beautiful fall color palette of soft golds, reds and complimentary blues. Using my palette knife, I created textured layers of birch trees and fall foliage on a dreamy and earthy background with a beautiful and vibrant reflection in the foreground for depth and impact. Goes well with many decorating styles, ready to ship and ready to hang! ------------------------------------------------------...

T I T L E: Sweet Poppy by Lisa Elley I N S P I R E D* B Y: I often paint flowers, they are notoriously difficult to paint, but rewarding in an accidental way! Done entirely with the palette knife, these poppies are gestural and colorful, with very thick paint (impasto) that creates a lot of texture and a beautiful feeling of movement. Y E A R: 2016 S I Z E: 8 X 10 x 0.75 Inches. This is a gallery wrapped, archival quality canvas. M A ...

A large, abstract palette knife painting of San Francisco's most cherished occupant, the superbly anachronistic cable car! Highly textured and colorful, this modern painting brings an abstract but stylistic touch and the subject matter resonates with tourists, and locals alike! I named it 'A Fond Farewell' as they are just gone so quickly, like a noisy little hummingbird, and I'm rather fond of them. Ships fresh 2016, from my studio in the amazi...

Gallery Represented, International Award Winning Palette Knife Oil Paintings by Lisa Elley
Introduction
All my paintings are in oil, using mainly palette knives, with thick application, bold strokes, painterly detail and rich colors. 
The palette or painting knife gives my art a unique combination of contrast, fluidity, depth, texture and impact. I do not typically use a brush, as I prefer the way I can mix buttery paints and smear them on my canvas with a flexible metal blade. The amazing thick texture achieved with the knife reflects the light more than a regular brush painting and gives a beautiful sense of movement, with subtle highlights.
I am originally from New Zealand, where the beauty of nature is unsurpassed. The luminescent beauty of my homeland inspires me and I feel it in every stroke. I try to reflect this in my work and invite you to enjoy it as I do.
