Coming Up: Painting the Landscape With Palette Knives with Sue A. Miller

Painting the Landscape with Palette Knives November 25, 2023


Students who already have painting experience will learn techniques for using palette knives and other non-traditional tools to add flare to their painting style. 

Each student will be working on their individual paintings from their own sources.

Sue Miller creates realistically detailed oil paintings using strong design, expressive colour, and vibrant luminosity that immediately resonate with the viewer. She works in oil on canvas, capturing the effect of light on form and developing the unique colour, characteristics, and cultural aspects of the subject matter. Portraying every day objects and moments in extraordinary ways with a skillful use of colour, perspective, and vision is her trademark. Inspiration comes from the world around her and the ever-changing effects of light on a subject matter.



A variety of palette knives, large and small
(Sue has some students can borrow)
Kitchen spatula
Canvases (a few small boards for experimenting and one larger one for finished piece)
Paint (heavy body acrylic or oil paint)
Painting medium (optional)
Mixing palette
Odourless mineral spirits; Jar with lid (If using oil)
Water container


Please remember to bring a plastic sheet to cover the table, and only odourless solvents (no turpentine).
