I finally have my first decent fully palette knife made painting. The key being a firm painting surface/base and wrist movement. I still feel I get caught up in perfecting the strokes which sort of spoils the natural palette knife look. 
This ones inspired by one of artist A. Austin's jazz paintings and by the amazingly made move 'Whiplash'. New found respect for orchestra players! Wanted to squeeze in a guy with a trumpet or a flute or an organ, should probably use a bigger canvas next time. Its also time to buy a set of knives of different sizes!
