Angel with Trumpet - A small angel painting

"Angel with Trumpet"
5 x 5 inches, Oil on Board
Available for purchase.

I've tried my hand at another small angel painting.  I have one very favorite knife to paint with but a palette knife painting at this size requries a smaller one.  So I've been using the Langnickle J-3 for these - it still has enough flex and a good sized tip.  Still, these smaller paintings are a little difficult to paint loose and not just make it into a huge blurr.  Had to use a brush here and there to make sure the colors were where I wanted them to be.

Hi Claudia - thank you - and yes, Angels are fun to paint with the knife - especially their wings because it come out "frothy" you know what I mean. :)
I've seen your angels when I visited your site and they are lovely! Happy painting, Judy
