Having fun with palette knife painting

Here's a little treat :D   This is what we painted in Oil Class Saturday.  I'm missing one picture here.  The student left, carrying her work home with her.

Most the time, we  (yes, me included) work with thin layers of oil paint......being conservative with the precious commodity.  Creating a painting using only a palette knife forced us to lay the paint on thicker to the canvas.

I always have at least one class reserved to do this sort of painting during a month of sessions.  It's the only time I may work laying the canvas flat on a table. It's easier to move the piece sideways, upside get the idea.
