Palette Knife Painting

I painted some more tangerines today, but this time I used a palette knife! This is my first painting using only a knife.  I watched some of Leslie's palette knife demos HERE and then I gave the technique a try.
5x7 oil on canvas
Here's what I learned today:

I am a messy painter when I use a brush, but I'm even messier with a palette knife. 

Too much paint is not always a good thing.

Painting with a knife is different, but I think I'll try it again!

It's Day 6 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge and I'm lagging far behind those artists who finish a painting every day.  That's okay; I'm having fun!
