Working loose and suggestive - "Golden Path" oil palette knife painting

Golden Path palette knife painting
15x15cm (6x6inch)
Oil on box canvas 1.5cm (5/8inch) deep
Available on Dailypaintworks

Another exercise in keeping things very loose and suggestive, but using a slightly different technique than used on "Distant Mountain". With this painting I did not blend the strokes but used single strokes and left them alone (well mostly!). I finished the painting off by splashing colour on the foreground to suggest flowers.

Here are the two paintings side by side. Which technique do you prefer?
