Cyril,

This is really well done.  The texture of the cliffs lends itself well to knife painting.

Great waterfall!

You mean you actually own an ironing board 😨   Have you heard about permapress?

I am most impressed with your painting.  It is very rich.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :clap: Nice, Cyril. I know nothing, zero, zilch about painting with a knife so I have no comments or suggestions. This is impressive. No brush at all? Wow!  :heeha:

Love, love, love this. Just fabulous from the textures to the abstract quality of the vegetation. Shows that less is more!!!!!!!!
