20171111_061249-2451468679.jpgI took a class last night at Art in the Carolinas in Raleigh.

Sean Dye taught us how to make “Intriguing Interiors” paintings in pastel.  It was fun to try something new.

pk-hydrangeasYesterday it was hydrangeas that I painted using the knife.  (This one is SOLD!) I am loving this method.  Can’t wait to get home and really spread out and do some of these on larger canvas.  We leave today after having a really great time at Art of the Carolinas.  I have two friends who came with me and they have had some interesting classes as well.  It is so much fun to be the student for a change!

pk-sunflowersStill enjoying Art of the Carolinas in Raleigh.  Yesterday the Trade Show opened so I spent several hours browsing the vendors and picking up supplies.  Lots of great bargains.  Boy that was FUN!!!!  Then I had time to work on more paintings.  Here is another palette knife piece that I did.  This is fun too!  The Black-eyed Susans is on a 12″ x 12″ canvas with frame and is SOLD!  The Tulips from yesterday is a 9″x 12″ and is available also.  Email me at kwalker@kellywalkerstudios if you can’t live without them.  🙂

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.

logoOne of the most fun things I have ever done with painters is going to “Art of the Carolinas” in Raleigh.  It’s a  huge trade show and they have art workshops for 4 days from which to choose.

For several years my art friends from Kentucky met me over in Raleigh and we had a reunion as well as a great time painting.  That was wonderful.   This year several of us are going from my classes and it’s not too late to go.  Click this link to learn more and see the available classes.  It is well worth the trip….and Raleigh isn’t that far.  I’ve already signed up for two classes and another one has caught my eye!  🙂
