Palette Knife Acrylic Painting
A two-day workshop. March 7 and 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Meeting at the studio in Art on 7th (330 7th Avenue East in Hendersonville.)
Instructor Diane Dean will focus on painting with heavy bodied acrylics and palette knives in a loose style. Diane will include several demos using various techniques, acrylic paint formulas, and a variety of sizes of palette knives. Options for students will be both impressionistic and abstract. Students will work on stretched canvas and will find that although painting with a palette knife is challenging, it can be a rewarding approach to paint application. When applied, the colors make an immediate impact due to their purity. Many artists abandon paint brushes altogether in favor of the semi-flexible palette knife to create paintings that are full of rich texture and sweeping blends of color.
