Still working that palette knife. Well that is not exactly true. I have more than one knife. And I do lay down a thin sketch with a brush before I start using the knife. I find it helpful to pre-mix colors and different values of the colors before I start to use the knife. Of course I never mix enough, but that's okay because you end up with variety and some slight grays in your mixes.
