For the past few years I have been painting small 4X6 paintings of jazz musicians to sell as small impulse gifts while attending local art shows. Guys, in this video I will show you how I used the palette knife to paint in small areas without distorting the image. The main take away from the video is using the tip of the palette knife when painting a small painting.
Also, one way to improve your skills is to do small quick paintings like the 4×6 jazz painting in the video. Small sizes are less intimidating and easy to gesso over if you mess up.
