30-in-30 Challenge – Day 18

Today’s painting should probably be titled “fun with a palette knife” instead of the non-name I’ve given it.  I picked up a cheap plastic palette knife (it came with the new plastic palette I bought) and decided that another venture into painting with gouache was needed.  I thought to try some collage as well but that part wasn’t working for me so the two bits that I did collage in just ended up getting painted over.

This one was a bit more fun to do, I’ll say that.  I think the key is to not thin the paint out with water, or to not use too much of it.  This isn’t watercolor and I keep trying to use it like that, which seems to be a bit part of the problem. When I just went with straight paint, the results look better to me.
