Some like it hot - still life in oils

Some like it hot still life palette knife painting
20c20cm (8"x8") oil on canvas board
This is another rework. Initially painted with a brush, I just couldn't get the effect I wanted. I left is aside for a while and last week I reworked it using impasto paint and a palette knife. Although not too bad before, the rework has added 'oomph'. There is something satisfying about reworking a painting, maybe it's because there is nothing to lose and the painting is no longer 'so precious' so there is more freedom to just go for it.
