Each year there is a big Trade Show & Workshop held in Raleigh NC called Art of the Carolinas. I’ve attended several times but haven’t been able to make it in a few years…until now. I came this year with two friends and we are enjoying the workshops. Yesterday I went to Kimberlee Maselli‘s Expressive Floral with Palette Knife class. She’s a great instructor helping each of us to learn to use a variety of knives to get shapes and designs to make a lovely floral painting.
We first worked on paper with a few different shapes and then she turned us loose on a canvas panel. She had fresh flowers available for inspiration. I chose the tulips. It was a fun and different way for me to work. Can’t wait till the next workshop. More from Raleigh tomorrow.
