Join D&L and Anne Nye for a hands-on course with an emphasis on the artistic possibilities of creating scenes with her new palette knife method. This workshop is perfect for traditional watercolor or acrylic painters who would like to try their hand at glass, as well as accomplished glass artists.
Students will be guided through the process of "palette knife glass" while creating studies of different landscape elements such as clouds, trees, water, and more. Techniques learned through these small studies can then be applied to their own compositions. Participants will learn how to develop sketches from photos for successful frit paintings and also learn which photos work best. Compositional basics such as color balance, shading/contouring, and value will all be discussed and implemented during this workshop.
Participants will be lead through a series of experiments with color, creating thumbnails that will serve as smaller studies, aiding in the creation of the final pieces. The sample tiles created in this workshop will serve as a valuable reference tool for future projects. On the final day of the workshop, Anne and participants will critique and troubleshoot any issues that occurred during the pieces' firing, as well as learn how to apply the palette knife technique to "painting" flowers in glass.
90 COE glass is used in this class. The techniques explored in this class are applicable to either 90 COE or System 96 glass.
