One of the biggest complaints painters have is mixing colors that stay clean on their canvas. Students will learn how the pallet knife can achieve crisp, clean paintings, even when working alla prima (all at once). Most painters incorporate some pallet knife techniques, even if they prefer brushes overall. By identifying values and massing (blocking in) large shapes, students will see better results early on and spend less time “fixing” their work later. Adding deliberate texture or subduing texture throughout the process will be discussed. These strategies combined with good elements make for more confident, successful paintings.
