Here is the little 6" painting that I used as inspiration to teach in my first course; Deep Impasto painting with Lisa Elley.
I chose this piece as it's just so ethereal and beautiful. I also thought it involves a good amount of steps for students to execute in an orderly fashion, so that they could understand the sequence and learn the process in laying down impasto paint.
Palette knife painting is not as easy as it looks! This painting is quite tricky.
There are steps to take in order not to muddy the colors and to layer the paint just so. if you go too quickly and don't follow the sequence, results will not be clear or good.
My students are doing such an excellent job in the course, I'm really thrilled with how fast they are learning!
That's all for now, have a wonderful day!
