Oil Paintings - Mushrooms and Bananas

I did these two little 5 x 7 oils on canvas boards yesterday at the group painting session. I tried using a palette knife for the first time with the first painting. It was difficult at first, but finally I figured it out. I like this one quite a bit.
'Cobalt and Chiquita', 5 x 7, oil on canvas board

Then I did another using my brushes.
"Mushrooms", 5 x 7, oil on canvas panel

I prefer to work fairly fast, so these small canvases were perfect. I added only a few more details today.

Oh WOW....... these are both great. You are certainly getting the feel for oil paints. The blue with the yellow in teh Cobalt and Chiquita is very striking. Also... gotta say the mushrooms is wonderful and savory. Both are a 10.
