Rediscover your passion for paint with dramatic palette knife painting. Enjoy the sensation of applying thick buttery paints to the canvas. Using a knife enables you to create interesting textures and encourages a lively, impressionist treatment that adds greatly to the impact of the finished painting. Learn to skip the details and focus on shapes, color and value - and best of all - TEXTURE! Palette knife painting is perfect for artists that want to avoid using solvents. Unlike a brush, you just wipe the knife clean and continue painting.
Come learn color, value, and composition basics, while you master the techniques of painting with a palette knife. This is a great way to energize your painting and develop your own unique style. Plus plenty of one-on-one assistance and encouragement from Kim!
