I love to use a lot of texture (impasto)
Since an oil impasto would take up to a year to dry, I first used a modeling paste
[a mixture of compound (70%) with Elmers glue] texturing the canvas.
When dry I painted this oil with big rough bristles (dry brushing technique)
and lots of different palette knives.
