This oil painting of a colorful hillside in springtime, is heavily textured as I used a palette knife and stylus while painting it. It was painted on the back of a small bamboo box. These boxes are sold in the decor stores and used normally as a drawer divider. They make nice painting surfaces when gessoed over and painted on with oils. The box sides are painted black, and the last view below includes a bit of the side.
