At first it may seem different to learn painting with a palette knife but with little practice and Artist-led instruction students will be amazed at what can be achieved. This is one of the most rewarding techniques that produce absolutely eye-catching effects.
The fundamentals of values, color mixing, atmospheric perspective and composition will be discussed in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Each participant will leave with a completed painting ready to hang.
