ONLINE PRIVATE PAINT NIGHT
MONDAY, MAY 10th
5-7pm MST (7-9pm EST)
Birch Trees with Palette Knife
An Online Paint night is designed to inspire, connect & just simply have fun in the comfort of your personal space. So clear off your table & join me for a creative evening!
Here is a list of suggestions to have with you for your Session & how to prepare
Acrylic paints: You'll want to have paint from the tube for this tutorial. Black, White and Choose 2-3 colours that go well together & suit your taste! I'll be using Fluorescent Pink & Turquoise. Other options, Light Blue, Pink & Pastel Green or Pink & Light Green. Here are a few more images to give you an idea
Note* For paint nights its not necessary to use expensive paints. The professional grades have more pigment than student. I like Amsterdam paint for an economical option with higher pigment. Michael's carries Artist's Loft as their student grade & professional acrylic set option.
Here are a few links to help you out:

Palette knives I would have up to 3 on hand. Metal or plastic works. Choose ones that have straight sides rather than curved. The tips can definitely have a curve like this image.
Brushes You can have a few on hand but we'll be using mainly the palette knife for applications.
Paper Towel & Rag for cleaning brushes in between coats
Hair Dryer is handy (in case you need to speed up drying time)
A palette for your paints - A paper or plastic white plate works well
