No previous palette knife experience is required!
This workshop is about discovering the excitement and passion of palette knife painting. During this time, you will explore unique color mixing and knife painting techniques that promise to breathe new life into your repertoire of artwork. T he energy that is generated during these workshops not only teaches students more about painting, it also inspires the practice of acceptance.
There is no such thing as perfect here! Students use provided photo references of landscape; floral and figurative subject matter to learn how to apply paint with a knife. Through demonstration, Sally will introduces you to different knife sizes, stroke shapes and directions, textures, lost and found edges, etc. Students will practice painting with a full range of shoulder, elbow, and wrist motion in order to discover all the possibilities. Pre-mixed color palettes will be used to allow clean, decisive paint application.
