Event description

Description

Colour can be intimidating but if you understand the theory that underlies subtractive colour mixing, and have the opportunity to practise the delicate mixing skills under the guidance of an experienced artist, then you have solid skills that stay for life.

We begin with biased secondary mixes & move onto mixing the subtractive tertiary mixes of greys & blacks, how to gently desaturate colours, all skills that are so important in painting but also apply to drawing, design including interior design.

You learn:

– The optimal pigments to mix clear secondary colours
– How to organise a palette
– The relationships between complementary colours
– The three components of colour
– Colour value and it’s role in pictorial organisation
– Distinction between value & saturation in colour
– The crucial role of neutral colours
– How to mix a neutral grey with complementary colours 
– Desaturate a colour to change it’s value
– Mix colour through layering paint
– Brushwork when layering colour

Handouts are provided with full information on colour theory, paints, mediums and brushes.

We recommend this workshop as a primer for our courses drawing for beginners and painting.

Workshop limited to 6 students, only 4 places left.
