Oil study #159

This is the palette knife version of the previous still life study (oil study #158).

Except for the object placement I painted this one from memory (right after the previous study). I wanted this to be fast(er :) and more decisive than with the brush. I stuck to the decisions that were made in the previous study. The memory part is mostly about the value and color relationships, which I think I got pretty close here. I believe that if there is a part I don't remember it's because I didn't observe it well enough in the first place. Maybe I'll change my mind in this with more complex setups :)
