The things I discover....  While we were in Martinique, I picked up a rather nice set of palette knives. I thought they would be good when I get some acrylics. Now, I met a fellow artist here in St. Lucia who tells me I can also use them with watercolour. I know, I know...I have enough trouble with brushes!  :2funny:  I just find the concept rather intriguing. What can you tell me?
I know I must stay more focused with what I'm doing...but its such fun!  Isn't this exciting?!  :parachute:
Cheers, Val

Would be interesting to hear what Denis says. I am then presuming the artist you chatted to is using the tub watercolours and not the pans when he paints with the knife?

It does not matter whether it is from the pan or the tube as the liquid paint is used. Very interesting what can be achieved with the painting knife :D even a credit card ;D

Will do a demo video for you sometime next week.

Hi, sorry for the delay. Sunday here at the moment and had to go to church first.
So here is the video I promised. Enjoy

Press start. As it starts pause it immediately and let the orange line go some way before starting proper.
