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.  You can explore a whole painting with only your knife — or use the knife only for accents. Some of the advantages of the palette knife include:

  • 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
  • Mixing colors of course!

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 the brush and the palette knife. Day two we’ll paint a still life — adding the challenge and opportunity of painting from life!

Hope you can join us! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
