Techniques in Palette Knife Painting
taught by Silvia Trujillo

Saturday and Sunday, May 2 & 3 11am – 4pm
Skill Level: All Skill Levels, 16 and older
The direct approach of applying paint to the canvas with a palette knife was very popular with the Impressionist, and of particular interest to artists like Van Gogh and Monet. The palette knife can render luscious texture and depth, while maintaining rich pure colors. In this class, you will develop skills with the palette knife to enhance your work in value, design, and color harmony.

I’ve just posted some recent palette knife – plein air paintings that were completed on the Oregon Coast. I’ve been living on the coast for the last few months and have become well acquainted with quite a few lovely plein air painting locations. If by chance you’re planning a trip to the central coast and would like to do plein air work or would like a studio lesson, let me know and maybe we can get together.

Also, if you’re in Florence, stop by the KB Gallery in Old Town on Maple St. to see my work and many others by local artists!
