Settled In (and my first palette knife video!)

Pin It

"Settled In"
Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas panel.
$200 with display easel.
I have been promising myself I would do a palette knife painting video for quite some time now. After spending about 40 hours on my son's volleyball video I figured now was a good time to get it done. My editing skills are certainly refined and it was actually fun to do. Plus my new TB hard drive allows me plenty of storage for my video projects.
So my first palette knife demo is complete and you can view it here.
I love uplifting music so don't expect some slow playing classical music in the background ... I had a lot  more fun with the Black Eyed Peas!

Hi Leslie,
You did it! Thanks, that was very informative, I recently bought a book about palette knife painting and this helps with explaining the concept.

I think the video came out great! Maybe someday I'll actually be brave enough to try it. :)

Thanks Leslie. Great video. I just tried my first palette knife painting last week (getting ready for your Sept. workshop) and I loved it. I did my second one over the weekend. I'm hooked!
