The workshop, led by local artist, Diane Dean (https://www.dianedean.com) 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 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. Materials supplied.
