Course Description

In this course, you will learn how to paint island scenes with a palette knife using oils on canvas. Each session focuses on a particular painting concept. Classes begin with a general discussion of the main topic we are covering for the month. That is followed by a painting demo by the teacher. Students watch, then try their hand at color mixing and painting the same. 

Meet the Artist

I paint with a single palette knife using oils on canvas.  I have always been drawn to the creative process. Coming up with something new that captures a thought, a feeling, or a fleeting image in my mind.  Painting for me is like a meditation.  You have to be fully in the moment and what I love is how the creative process so often produces delightful surprises for me.  With a palette knife, a stroke of the knife or a subtle change in pressure will mix and lay the colors on my canvas with unexpected results.Creating beauty is truly rewarding.  Colors speak to me and I love the contrasts of bold strokes of the knife shrouded by an ethereal mist.  I want my paintings to convey a certain mood or feeling while at the same time leaving room to be filled by the imagination of the viewer.
