Painting with Knives in Acrylic

Create vibrant, textural, impressionistic landscapes using a palette knife and heavy body acrylic paints.  Palette knife painting is all about using interesting shapes of broken color in your composition. Painting with a knife will force you to loosen up and abstract the details of your subject. We will also cover topics such as color mixing, broken color, the use of value in your composition, and the benefits of an under-painting. We will be using photos as reference for our paintings. You can bring your own or I will have several available for you to use.

Two workshops: June 18,19,20   &   August 27,28,29

Welcome!  I create impressionist palette knife paintings which are vibrant and textural. Much of my work is inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains that I call home, but I also paint scenes from other places. Where ever I travel, I see paintings waiting to be created. If you are interested in learning more about my techniques, you can check out my workshops and my new book "Simple Guide to Color and Value".
