Painting Contemporary Figurative Paintings

Karen Knutson – Proud in Pink – 3rd place – 2018 Northstar Watermedia National Juried Exhibition

Karen Knutson
Learn to loosen up and paint from the heart! We will be drawing more contemporary versions of people, in the loosest fashion possible. Simplicity is the name of the game in this workshop. Many techniques for texture, how to build layers for depth, working with limited colors, and lots of fun tricks done with rubbing alcohol and other tools, are just some of the new skills that you will learn.

One day, we will learn how to do wire drawings, which will help the students to loosen up! (Wire drawings are done with permanent markers and they resemble wire sculptures when completed.) This workshop is geared for all levels of acrylic students. We will also be trying other mixed media for detail work, like caran d’ ache crayons and prismacolor pencils. Karen Knutson is a very sought after instructor who believes that painting should be fun, but also likes to teach good design at the same time! www.karenknutson.com
