9/9/2022 ONLINE DEMO: "Palette Knife Painting for Sky and Water in Oils or Acrylics" with Alex Sharma

LIVE ONLINE DEMO with Alex Sharma 
WHEN: Friday (10 to 11:30am EST)
September 9, 2022

The palette knife is very versatile and does so much more than obtaining texture or working in a thick, impasto method. Imagine sooth water with beautiful reflections, and skies that have convincing clouds.
In this demonstration, Alex will show how to hold and load your palette knife to get these effects to happen automatically as you paint.
All you need to paint along with Alex is either acrylic or oil paint (colors: Red, Blue, Yellow & White), Heavy weight drawing paper and a palette knife with a trowel type handle (The metal part of the handle should have a bend it in, not be straight).
NOTE: Each participant will receive a high-resolution image of the final demo painting along with any important notes Alex wishes to pass along, and, a recording of the demo available for the ticket purchaser to re-watch for 30days after the conclusion of the demo. These pieces will be sent on Monday following the demonstration.
