Painting Landscape with Palette Knife in Oil
with Instructor Maria Iva

November


Painting Landscape with Palette Knife in Oil with Instructor Maria Iva

Palette knife painting is a thick application of paint that results in a heavily textured surface and requires the artist to "let go" of details. In this workshop, Maria will teach you how to create light filled landscapes in oil with beautiful texture and depth using the impasto technique. She will take you, step-by-step, through the processes of colour mixing, underpainting, texture, colour and composition. This workshop is intuitive, focusing on strokes and movement rather than perfect realism. Workshop is suitable to experienced beginners who wish to develop and expand their own particular painting styles. Materials List

About Maria Iva

Maria is a nature lover and a tireless hiker. She finds her inspiration in exploring wilderness areas of Southern Ontario. She often paints scenes that fascinate her on location with soft pastels on sanded paper and later recreates them on canvas in her studio in oil using a palette knife. Her pastel paintings are usually quick plein air sketches that capture the light and the feeling of the scene. Her oil paintings are much bigger pieces that are richly textured and colored. Using wet-on-wet technique she applies thick palette knife strokes that create depth and plenty of details. In both media Maria uses clean vibrant colors that allow her to demonstrate the effect of sunlight on the scene. Maria started painting after having a successful career in education and in a short time achieved a professional level that allowed her to exhibit and sell her work. Maria is an Elected Member of the Society of Canadian Artists and a Master Signature Member of the Pastel Artist Canada. She lives and works in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
