Life is finally starting to get back to normal. By now I would have usually taught several workshops, but this has not been a normal year for any of us!! Anyway… I’m teaching a palette knife workshop in West Jefferson, NC in September at the Florence Thomas Art School. It’s a wonderful town and school! Hope you can join us!!!
Exploring the Palette Knife
Florence Art School
September 7 and 8, 9:30-4:30,$215
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!
