Let Tim Fisher help you to unlock the techniques of how to handle a palette knife in this introduction to this popular technique for the amateur artist.

The knife has a different, raw and much looser connection with the surface you are painting on especially so when combined with acrylic media and the occasional brushstroke.

Let Tim Fisher help you to unlock the techniques of how to handle a knife and using some of the different profiles available. Using a step-by-step process, each chapter of the book covers a different subject helping to build and develop new skills, that will help you to become proficient when handling a painting knife.

  • Introduction to tools, material, palette, additives, and mediums as well as surfaces
  • Brief introduction to your chosen palette
  • Basic techniques and preparation. Completing small gestures studies and experimenting
with different angles and lighting situations will help you to establish a clear visual image of the intended painting. At the very least, this procedure will show you what not to paint.
  • The importance of sketching
  • 8 projects – 5 more straightforward with 3 more complex.

Some of the projects will show how to use palette knives alongside brushes to introduce texture into your paintings, and others are created using palette knives only. The book also explores collage and mixed media, incorporating paper clippings, sand and seashells to create a vibrant painting based on a day by the sea.

This book will appeal to acrylic artists of all abilities who wish to experiment with palette-knife painting in order to add stunning, dimensional effects to their artwork. It will not only teach them the basic techniques, it will also inspire them to explore palette-knife work in more depth and add another dimension to their painting repertoire.

So the time has come for action! There is no better opportunity than now to pick up one of these fascinating tools, squeeze out some paint on your palette and learn the essence of palette knife painting.
