Painting landscape with a palette knife with Kristen Olson Stone

Join me for a very special 1-day workshop!  I'll show you how palette knife painting can elevate your artwork through the use of targeted strokes of thick, expressive paint and strong design.  

I'll explain how to edit your photos in order to distill them down to the essential thing you want to say. As I demonstrate I'll show and discuss the specific colors I'm mixing as getting the colors right the first time is helpful in this approach to painting. I'll discuss the ways in which sculpted paint can add a suggestion of a non-visual element to the painting. Through this process you will learn simple ways to take your photos from a snapshot view to a representation of the experience of your landscape.

This course is perfect for beginning artists working in either oil or acrylic who are interested in palette knife painting as well as experienced artists who typically paint with brushes and want to learn a new and exciting way to add dimension to their work by making unique marks with a knife. As an artist ambassador for Royal Talens, there will be samples available for the workshop participants.

  • Beginner - advanced painters
  • Suitable for oil and acrylic painters 
  • Painting demonstration will be in water-mixable oils
  • Tell the story of your landscape with strong design +  the application of thick and expressive strokes of paint.  
  • I'll begin with a 1 1/2 hour painting demonstration followed by me going from easel to easel offering individual help for the rest of the afternoon. 
  • Artists will work from their own photographs.
