Palette Knife Paintings by Carmelo Blandino
Friday, March 07, 2014 • 23 comments
Artist Carmelo Blandino is known for using oil on canvas to create beautifully detailed paintings of flowers. On his "Single Flower Series" he explored the delicate beauty of flowers but for one of his most recent flower painting series, instead of using oil, this time he used acrylic paint and just a palette knife for creating the flowers and to give the painting a messy approach. Mess but in a good way if I must say, as the result is very impeccable. "Stroke after stroke I wiped away my memories related to my past, and began to build upon my present. A new artist appeared, with a new style, direction and drive."
