I am very excited to be teaching two workshops at the upcoming Artist Materials Expo Feb 21!
Summer Fun 12x12 oil on panel, palette knife painting. - Dawn Kinney Martin
Saturday, Feb 21, 9:00 - 12:00
Palette Knife Workshop
will be supplying the panels for the class!
I love to be on
water and boats are one of my favorite
things to paint. This 3 hour
s course will cover issues like different way to handle the knife,blocking in design, color mixing , and capturing reflected light. Students
should expect to
loosen up and
create expressive paintings with a palette. Working with a palette knife allows a broad range of textures. Students learn the nuances of value, working wet in wet and layering in order to keep colors rich and vibrant. There will be an emphasis on color mixing and keep you colors clean (no muddy colors) This course will begin with a demo to cover the basic approach. Demonstrations will continue as well as working one on one with the students as you work on your paintings. All levels welcome. Appropriate for beginners. The class will be taught using oils. Please contact instructor at
with any questions.
The class will be taught using oils. Can use Acrylics with a slow drying medium.
