When Alannah came to Art Camp this summer she fell in love with my Tulip Palette Knife painting.  She wanted to buy it for her room but instead we talked her into taking a lesson to do one of her own.  And she did an excellent job yesterday painting with a palette knife for the first time.  Great work girl!

I paint many demonstration paintings as I teach and most of the time I don’t go back and finish them up because I don’t usually have time before I am on to something else.  But occasionally I will go in and tighten up one or two so that they are a little more complete.  Here are a few that I did add a little more to recently.  You can see the original posts for these paintings here:  Still Life,  Sailboat Landscape, and Tulips.

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.
