If you have found yourself frustrated by “muddy” or dull colour in your oil paintings, having difficulty mixing the colours you want, or overwhelmed by choice at the art supply store or from your paint collection, this workshop is for you!
This workshop will help you understand colour more thoroughly, match colours more efficiently, choose effective pigments for your goals, and merge conceptual and perceptual understanding of colour. Through a series of exercises, discussions, and demonstrations, you will gain knowledge in topics such as the colour wheel, properties of colour (hue, chroma, and value) and how they relate to one another, colour temperature, direct and indirect painting, colour charts, and how to avoid "muddy" colours for clear and vibrant results in your paintings. There will be instructor demos, discussions and explanations, and plenty of hands-on painting time with the opportunity to ask questions.
Some oil painting experience recommended (no acrylic please).
Suitable for intermediate painters and adventurous beginners.
