Knife Painting, or Palette knife painting is a term used to describe the impasto technique of applying paint to canvas using a painting knife. Vincent van Gogh is amongst the famous names known to use this method of art. By applying thick daubs of oil paint on canvas, he was able to achieve the swirling, textural work he became famous for. Today, many contemporary artists continue to use painting knives in the same way to create expressive works that appear to come out from the canvas.
The palette knife is not just a tool for mixing paint on your palette. You can actually use the palette knife to create some pretty stunning effects in your paintings which are nearly impossible with a brush. Many artists abandon paint brushes altogether in favor of the semi-flexible blades to create paintings that are full of rich texture and sweeping blends of color.
