Oil Painting Workshop: Pleasure of the Palette Knife

December 9, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Instructor:  Susan Holben

Date: December 9th (Saturday)

Time: 10am-4pm 

Cost: $160 (includes some supplies*)

Discover the joy of applying oil paint to canvas using palette knives.   Much like spreading butter, the palette knife technique lends itself nicely to the shapes found in nature – cliff faces, mountains, skies, clouds, rivers, and sands.   

In this one-day workshop, students will create their own 12” x 12” painting, inspired by a spectacular western sunset.    Artists of all levels will experience the joy of laying down numerous textures using a palette of stunning local colors.  The class will cover canvas preparation, photograph gridding, rough sketching and paint application to loosely recreate a beautiful scene.   Finished paintings are contemporary, impressionistic and somewhat abstract, the result of painting loosely and having fun!

*Please note that this class is limited to eight students

*Cost includes a ready-to-hang 12” x 12” gallery wrapped canvas, use of studio palette knives and other miscellaneous supplies 

Student Supplies Required:

Professional Grade Oil Paint (Gamblin, Windsor Newton, etc.)

Ultramarine Blue

Alizarin Crimson

Olive Green

Gold Ochre or Cadmium Yellow Medium
