Day 2 with Stephanie Lee, a palette knife and a wonderful class room. To me being in the class room was my favorite part huge paint covered tables, tall windows with old rippled glass the smell of paint and turpentine. We were unable to use a brush, pencil, chalk or any other supply except the palette knife until 1 hour before the class was over. It was a challenge. I glued prints of photographs I had taken and painted over them. The fun part was scrapping the paint off revealing the image below. I enjoyed taking a razor blade and sand paper to my painting once it was dry and scrubbing the surface, I liked how the texture changed and how the images changed. This class was very difficult for me I am not a painter I just smeared paint on the canvas and moved it around. I don't know how often I'll use a palette knife in the future but I enjoyed the day with Stephanie and consider it a good learning experience.
