Joe uses a palette knife and incorporates loose flowing strokes of vibrant colour to create his distinctive impasto paintings on canvas. He will commence the workshop with a demonstration where you will get a feel for his technique; you will then be led through the various stages of creating a painting in his style. Joe will encourage you to open up and become comfortable creating your piece using a palette knife and a range of striking, vibrant colours.
“I love the texture of pure paint on canvas. I use the palette knife which stops my work being too precise. This gives my paintings a vibrant and spontaneous feel.”
Joe Armstrong grew up in London, and after working in advertising for a number of years, moved to Cornwall; he now paints professionally full time. Joe Armstrong is well-known in Cornwall where his large scale, colourful landscape paintings can be seen in galleries throughout the county. Joe paints outside as much as possible – you can sometimes find him painting around Cornwall during the Spring and Summer months, deep in a wooded valley surrounded by bluebells, or just sitting quietly painting on a hillside overlooking the sea.
All abilities very welcome.
