Karen Knutson paints in mixed media, trying to make her paintings fun and easy. A wide range of subjects, including landscapes, figures, collage, abstracts, florals, and birds. Many lessons are included on this blog to encourage her art students. Teaching across the country makes her life a great journey.
I'm excited to announce that I will be teaching in Cape Coral, FL on January 12- 14th, 2017. This is the second time that I've taught in this location. I love escaping the MN winters, so timing is everything! Charcoal pour birds is one of the subjects. This procedure is so fun. We actually pour a big bucket of water on a watercolor surface that is sprinkled with charcoal powder. The effect is so fun! Also, I will be teaching how to paint like Gustav Klimt. That technique involves scraping dots of acrylic, using a credit card. The colors are so beautiful! These two techniques are my most popular workshops. Both paintings below started using the acrylic scraping technique! Students send me paintings for months after each workshop. Pretty fun!
