Summer Foothills is a loose and highly textured painting depicting a mountain range from the high foothills. The painting was created using primarily palette knife techniques. Because acrylic gel media dry transparent and also work well with knife painting, a range of complex layered colors can be achieved. Highly textured oxide powder gels were brushed into the painting for contrast, and grasses were raked and painted in to finish the scene.
