Daily Painting 1443 Life in the Savannas Miniature oil painting

 I mainly used my painting knife on this one, it has lots of nice textures.

I just was asked the difference between a palette knife and a painting knife.  The palette knife has a wider and longer blade, its used to clean off a palette and to mix paint.  A painting knife can be lots of different shapes, its used to paint with.  You can paint with a palette knife and clean with a painting knife though.
 People ask me fairly often if I used my palette to paint with.  No.  That would be hard.  I guess you could use it as sort of  a shovel to paint a very large painting.  I would never tell somebody they can't paint a certain way.

The painting is 4 x 6 inches, oil on masonite.
