Join David Mensing online for ‘DYNAMIC PAINTING WITH A PALETTE KNIFE,’ an exciting and insightful crash-course in fine painting and fun with a palette knife. While painting with a palette knife can be challenging, there is no better way to create deep, expressive compositions. A fine knife painting is rich and tactile and something like a two-dimensional sculpture.

Attention to certain key principles of painting can accelerate growth as an Artist. Even modest growth in these areas can have profound impact on overall quality of work. An Artist of any skill level that develops a deeper appreciation and understanding of intensities, composition, movement, texture and light temperature is poised to make significant improvement in their work.


David Mensing’s paintings are featured in collections and exhibitions across the nation and around the globe. Numerous periodicals have featured his work with cover images and feature articles, including American Art Collector, Southwest Art and Western Art Collector. Recent national awards include Southwest Art’s ‘Award of Excellence’ in Icons of the West and Art and Soul: ‘Professional Juror / Best of Show.’

David Mensing lives in Sisters, Oregon with his wife and their three children.
