Salmon Roses

I am working with my palette knives today - pushing and pulling them to get the most effective strokes.  I can see that I need a small, narrow one for getting in those small spots with paint.  I have two that are rounded on one side and flat on the other, and so far, I have not found a good use for them.  I gravitate towards the wedge shaped ones the most, and I am again sticking with the metal ones - giving them a chance, as my favorite knife has always been the plastic one!  I am loving how they define the petals of the rose - so thick and juicy!  Painting number 921 in as many days :)
