Last month I did a 4 week palette knife painting workshop for the Franklin Senior Center in Franklin Massachusetts. We had 15 participants and did a hybrid model with half the class participating in person (the Roomies) and half the class following along via Zoom (the Zoomies). Then each week, they switched off so everyone got a chance to participant in person. Ariel organized the whole event and it went really well. She took these photos while I was painting and teaching.
For our first week, we painted flowers. I ended up with two paintings because I actually did a "practice" painting at home before the workshop started. I'll post the other 3 paintings in future blog posts.
is an award winning artist who paints exclusively with a palette knife. She holds a fine art degree and has worked as a professional graphic designer for many years. She began painting in oil again after taking a palette knife workshop through the Copley Society of Art in Boston and was immediately hooked. The thick, painterly, yet highly detailed strokes of color are trademarks of her style.
