Paint Tube, Palette Knife and Medium

Whew, finally I've put some pigment to canvas and now can say I've started ... officially!

I apologize for the glare.

I'm still getting use to the consistency of oil paints and how I want to handle them.  For me I'm using the trial and error method.

I had put these three items that I sat on some white paper inside a cardboard box.  For more controlled lighting (?????), then proceeded to paint.  The problem was I just forged ahead and didn't go any preplanning.  Next time I will plan, I'll do a value sketch.  I always love to do value sketches but I think I just got caught up in the excitement of finally getting some pigment to canvas that I forgot.  And, next time I'll plan my colors better.

Lets hope that next time I enjoy painting as much as I did this time.

All critiques and comments welcome.
