No More Mud – Colour Mixing Workshops

Colour Workshop

Colour mixing is one of the most difficult things an artist  has to do.  Even an artist who has been painting for some while can still have problems with getting just the right colour and there is always more to learn. To begin with, one must learn the basic colour mixing principles which are a lot more complicated than yellow and blue make green.

 

In April and May this year 2016 I will be holding two colour workshops. 

 

In the Introductory Workshop you will learn:

  • The basics—so you can understand why you get a particular colour from different colour combinations.
  • This workshop will give you a strong grounding in the science of colour mixing. Without this basic understanding you will always find it difficult to mix the colour that you want.
  • You will gain colour mixing experience and understand the differences between Primary, Secondary and Tertiary colours.
  • We will take a look at complementary colours and why they are important.
  • You will learn about the differences between tone, colour, hue and why things happen the way they do.

In the Advanced Workshop you will learn:

The second colour workshop will cover more advanced colour mixing knowledge. In order to attend this workshop you will have had to have done the introductory workshop first.

  • More on colour values
  • Mixing dominant and subordinate colour
  • Abstract Complementaries
  • Colour discords
  • Analogous colours and split complementaries
  • The psychology of colour
  • We will look at relationships between colours, how they affect each other and how you can use this to your advantage.

These workshops will be for a full day and will be held on the following dates:

Introductory workshop Sunday February19

Advanced workshop Sunday March 5
