Palette Knife Techniques with Hamid Ayoub


We still have a few spots left for this great Workshop so now is your chance to learn something new and improve your skill-set.  Even if you are pallet-knife shy you will learn composition and colour techniques that apply across the entire spectrum of art and perhaps a refresher will improve your work . . . besides, Hamid is far from dry and his sense of humour is infectious – he is a seasoned art instructor.

Just bring your imagination, and create a unique textured landscape or abstract work under the guidance of a master of composition.  Hamid will help you to understand and apply the principles and elements of design using paint, palette knife and canvas.   You’ll work quickly, drawing upon your intuition to create a richly textured outline and with Hamid’s mentoring, a vibrant finished piece.  No paintbrush required.
