Do you have difficulties with stress, art is the best healing!
It is difficult to paint flowers because it is not just a geometric object, but also a living creation of nature, delicate, transparent.
I made a tutorial on creating a rose with a palette knife in order to understand its geometric shape. After completing this lesson, it will be easy for you to create these delicate flowers, their image will be in your head and your hand will easily create the geometry of this flower following your creativity.
The second lesson is going in relaxed way, painting with a palette knife is becoming the pleasure and therapy.
You will learn from this lesson not only how to paint a rose. You will also see what materials are used for impasto, how to mix colors and how to control the whole process of drawing a flower. In addition you'll get relaxed and satisfied by you new skill!
The impasto technique involves painting in several layers. Without knowing this subtlety, the work can easily fail and disappointment often forces you to quit painting and no longer take a palette knife in your hands.
The secret is to correctly observe the thickness of the first layer. In my tutorial, I will talk about this in detail.
If you apply the background correctly, then you can adjust your work at any time. No stress that something can go wrong, everything is easy and interesting.
Thus, you simply cannot fail!
We re going to need:
I used Van Gogh, and Cobra, you can also choose another firm but the colors usually all firms use the same. For a palette knife you don’t need any solvents and thinners.
Cadmium Yellow/ Azo yellow
Olive green/Viridian green
Azo red medium
Palette I usually use this tear-off palette. It’s very useful.
It has to be a soft one. You can check it if you try it on a canvas, it has to bend. If the canvas bends, it is a hard palette knife, and doesn't match you.
The palette knife "Fish" is universal and very useful. It has rounded edges. You'll know more in the course about that.
Small canvas, oil paper or panel 8 x 8 inches, 20 x 20 cm
