Join us for a two-day workshop exploring the use of the palette knife in your painting. The knife can add a looseness and freedom to your paintings. Some of the advantages of the palette knife besides mixing paint:
- Easy to clean
- Great for texture and clean color
- The edge creates great lines, trees, etc.
- You can paint over wet layers without the paint mixing like a brush
You can explore a whole painting with only a knife, or use the knife only for accents.
Day one will include an introduction to the knife and the limited palette we’ll use. Together we’ll all paint a landscape from a photo, using some brushwork and the palette knife. Day Two we’ll paint a still life, adding the challenge of painting from life.
