July 16 - Acrylic Painting with Palette Knives

125.00

Painting with palette knives is dynamic. These tools let you push, slather, slice, swirl, trowel, layer, and smear paint onto the canvas, achieving effects that would be impossible using brushes alone. Palette knives are versatile; they can be used with paint thickened to a luxurious impasto, or with thinned-down paint to create ethereal watercolor scenes. You can use them to trace the finest of lines, or, with the sweep of an arm, spread a rich swath of color across your canvas. In this workshop you’ll be encouraged to explore techniques and develop a personal approach to palette-knife work using acrylic paints. You’ll learn to create uniquely personal paintings, be they abstract or impressionistic, glossy smooth or roughly textured. Drawing on his background in theatrical set painting and a wide-ranging body of work painted with palette knives, teaching artist Lenny Pinna will lay the foundation for this day of artistic discovery by guiding you through an array of methods.
