Demo at the Mastering your Mark Art Conference
Andrea Petitto will demonstrate how she begins and develops a painting using brushes and palette knives at various stages of the work, and the use of knife strokes to create texture, to blend colors on the canvas, and to express line and mass. Using a palette knife to paint introduces a whole range of textures and strokes that contributes to a masterful sense of paint handling. It also makes possible an enhanced crispness of color and line for bolder and more compelling images. In any given painting, an artist can use both brushes and palette knives for different effects and different stages of the painting process.
