In this lesson I will introduce using a palette knife to enhance your brush paintings. This is a great place to start if you haven’t used or rarely use a palette knife. The painting is completed with 80% brushes, and 20% palette knife.
I’ll show you how to create this painting from start to finish. Learn how to create a unique tonal background, by taking bright colors and dulling them down. Then when you add the bright colors to the foreground and use them as accents they really pop! This lesson is a ton of fun and will get you inspired to try new things and new colors!
