Palette Knife Demo

This past week, I was asked to do a palette knife painting demo for the Blackstone Valley Art Association meeting. I was so pleased that everyone came out on such a busy holiday week. I learned so much from the experience.

Here are some photos from the evening.

Members assembling... eager to ask questions. I actually sliced myself with the palette knife I had in my hand at the time as I was talking. Who knew they were that sharp?

I introduced the group to my palette knife family.

Two members wanted to paint along with me.

One painted flowers...

...while the other painted an figurative abstract. I think they both came out great!

One member wanted to get an up close view of the painting technique.

Afterwards, the others came up to take a closer look.

While I didn't finish the painting, this is where I stopped.

And here is my palette by the end of the evening. I'd say it was time for a scrape!

This Thanksgiving week, I want to thank the BVAA for allowing me to share my passion for palette knife painting. What a welcoming, enthusiastic group.

Merci de nous montrer par le biais de ces photos ce moment privilégié que celui de votre cours... Il ne doit pas être facile de poursuivre une toile tout en donnant des conseils... la tendance serait souvent qu'on en oublierait qu'il y a des élèves autour de soi!!!
Bisous, j'ai hâte de voir la progression de votre travail.
