Nancy Anderson is an award-winning artist who has mastered just about every art medium and enjoys switching from one to the next depending on her mood and interest. She will be demonstrating the use of palette knives when painting with acrylics. She will share a variety of techniques that she has developed over the last couple of years. These techniques have allowed her to work quickly to capture the essence of a scene. Whether doing plein air or working in the studio her techniques can help artists to loosen up and have more fun painting. If you’ve never done any plein air, she hopes that this just might be the impetus to get you outside occasionally as she feels that it can really strengthens one’s studio work.
