Desert Palette knife plein air by BECKY JOY

Phoenix View  9x12 oil on canvas panel, plein air

I've gone out painting the last three mornings. This was from this morning. I felt pretty good about this painting. I've been trying to use the palette knife a little more this week. Yesterday was frustration!
I feel that I get cleaner, brighter colors by using the palette knife more so than the brush. I do like to use both. They each have their advantages and distinctive look. This is looking down a wash off into the distance with the houses and mountains.

Hopefully, I'm out again tomorrow morning. Gorgeous weather right now!
