Back by popular demand! This new palette knife technique involves both heavy and fluid acrylic paints. We will use only 2-3 heavy body acrylics (mostly white). As you paint, you will blend in vibrant colors to the heavy body white acrylic paint with fluid acrylic colors. The blending is done right on the canvas. It goes quickly. Don’t worry about it being perfect... that’s part of the beauty of palette knife painting! Mistakes can be happy mistakes! Once the background is complete, we'll let it dry a bit and then add the composition and details. The texture and mood you’ll get will be amazing! All supplies are included for this 1 day workshop: canvas, palette knives, paint, and disposable aprons. Limited spots are available for this workshop... don't wait to book until it's too late!
