Oils Palette Knife Practice

This a 5" x 7" practice piece where I am trying to learning control of a small palette knife. I was trying for smooth passages, along with textures especially in the trees. Also, below is a photo of my palette along with the small palette knife that was used. The palette is glass and has edges and a portion of the underside of the glass bound with gray duct tape. As you can see the glass palette and the Masterson Palette box are well used.

LOL - a well-used palette is a good sign!!!

This painting reminds me of an icy cold day in the middle of winter. Sitting here in high humidity and what's shaping up to be another very hot day, I like being reminded of the middle of winter and icy cold days!

Hopefully it will get even more use! *grin*

I will scrap this palette knife practice down and use the board again.
