Join award winning palette knife painter Melanie Levitt in this one day studio workshop at Todd Bonita Gallery. The focus of this class will be on how to paint an entire painting in oils with a palette knife creating interesting marks and textures. Through demonstration and individual attention, students will learn how to distill the important information from a photo and translate it onto the canvas quickly. Melanie will address the importance of sketching/composition, how to create depth & light in a painting, color mixing, energetic mark making, and how to choose a stain color for your scene. All this will be taught in an understandable step by step process which will lead students to improve their ability to simplify the landscape and create a dynamic painting in a short time. This class is suitable for the beginner or the intermediate student who want to loosen up and learn how to paint with a palette knife. The instructor will provide a photo and students can also bring some of their own.
