Join us for a three-day workshop exploring the use of the palette knife in your paintings. The knife can add a looseness and freedom to your paintings. You can explore a whole painting with only a knife, or use the knife only for accents.

Some of the advantages of the palette knife, besides mixing paint of course:

  • 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

Day One will include an introduction to the knife and the limited palette we will use. We’ll create a color chart of your limited palette. Together we’ll all start a landscape from a photo, using some brushwork and knife work. Day two we’ll finish up our landscape and start painting a still life. The still life adds the challenge and opportunity of painting from life. Day three we’ll finish out still life, review and critique.

This class is for advanced beginners to intermediate painters. I’ll be working in oils, but feel free to use acrylics if that’s what you’re familiar with. Bring your own supplies and a bag lunch. A supply list will be provided when you register. Feel free to contact me with any questions! Hope to paint with you soon!!
