Paint a fun knife painting with Fawn!
You will need a support: canvas panel or wooden hardboard (11 x 14 inches is what she is using).
Use sand paper (fine grade) to smooth the board. If using hardboard, prime it with 2 coats of gesso. Let it dry and sand it between coats. You can add color to the primer, or paint it gray it after it dries. A hair dryer can speed up the process! Use acrylic tube paints instead of craft paints, as they are thicker and work better. And of course you will need a palette knife!
You can use colors of your preference, but the colors she recommends for this painting are:
White, cadmium yellow light, red oxide (or burnt sienna), burnt umber, ultramarine blue, and phthalocyanine blue.
Part two! Add any bright red (Napthol Crimson is used here) to finish out the painting with extra details. Fawn shows you how to add shadows and highlights to enhance the painting.
