Painting knife practice sketch with water based oils. "Storm over Cornwall"

This was done all with a painting knife with no initial drawing, as I am admirer of Alan Cotton who is famous for his wonderful painting knife oil paintings, I thought I would see how working without a brush  and just using these unusual instruments would end up, even though I was a little conservative on the use of the oil paint, I was quite pleased with the result.
