Palette Knife Painting in Acrylic with Diane Dean

Polymer clay

Palette Knife Painting

October 12 and 13, 10am to 4pm

This workshop will focus on painting with heavy bodied acrylics and palette knives in a loose style.   The workshop 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, though painting with a palette knife is a 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. 

Students will work on a variety of compositions.  The instructor provide tools and some paint.  Art on 7th, 330 7th Avenue East, Hendersonville. Art League of Henderson County.

Fee: Members $180. Non-members $190.
