In this workshop, Cindy will demonstrate her techniques for painting with a palette knife to create artwork with loose, bold strokes.  In the morning we will start with a “30-stroke” exercise. We will use a simple object as our inspiration for this exercise.  From there, we will practice our techniques by creating a still life using palette knives.  In the afternoon, we will create a simple, loose landscape from a reference photo.

You may use oil or acrylic paints for this workshop.  This workshop is intended for those who have painted before in either oil or acrylic but beginner artists are welcome!  No palette knife experience is necessary.

This afternoon workshop will focus on painting with oil and palette knives in a loose, impressionistic style.   The workshop will include several demos using new techniques Cindy has learned including using thumbnail sketches and notans to simplify shapes, values and check your composition before starting your painting.  Students will have time to paint a still life and landscape after each demo.   Cindy will provide each student with an 8”×10” and 6”×8” gesso board.

Cindy will demonstrate using oil, but acrylic can also be used. This workshop is intended for those who have some experience with painting in oil or acrylic.  No palette knife experience is necessary.
