A Little Palette Knife Painting

Abundant Meadow, 6x6" oil on board

I got out my oils and palette knife yesterday and had some fun painting this little 6x6" oil on board.
I really like using a palette knife because of the easy clean up afterwards, but I have to admit there are times when a brush comes in handy to knock down some of the texture in areas I don't want as much.
I am encouraged enough by my results that I think I will continue to paint some little oils as well as my pastels. The oils I am using are water-soluble and I think I might go out and purchase some regular oils just to compare and see what I like best.
