Colour Workshops

Many things can be learnt from colour workshops.   The weekend before last, this is what we did.  A solid day, six hours of colour theory and practice.  By taking time out to devote to an intense day of colour mixing, you can in the course of a day, get enough of a grasp on the colour principles to become fairly confident about what you are doing.  If you are struggling with colour, then I would strongly recommend you find someone doing a workshop near you and sign up.

Colour theory - Color mixing workshop

Color workshops

Colour theory is something that many aspiring artists spend hours being confused, irritated and despairing over.  Have you ever spent time trying to mix a particular colour only to end up with a mess of mud, over and over.  Well you are not alone there and I suspect that much of the problem lies with looking at the wrong books, poor teaching, watching misleading U Tube videos and mis-labelled paint tubes. Beginning next week, I am going to be starting a series of posts on the basics of colour theory. Below are some more images from the workshop……
