“Where did this color come from?!”

This can be a frustrating question, brought on by that mix of color on the palette: “mud.” This comprehensive workshop will show you how to take the guesswork out of color mixing and gain color confidence! Learn how to organize your palette in order to mix the color you want. Over the course of the workshop you will create a variety of color swatch pages to help you recognize specific color characteristics and color relationships. Demo’s will be given throughout the day on how to create proper mid tones, mutes and tints. Basic color theory will be discussed as well as instruction on how to really “SEE” color. The roles of white and black (and how to mix your own black) will also be covered.

This workshop is extraordinarily helpful to painters of all levels – it is certainly a great color start for beginners as well as an opportunity for advanced painters to hone their skills.

A basic understanding of color is the beginning to creating rich, mature and cohesive works of art. More importantly, confidence in mixing color brings enjoyment and ease to the entire painting experience.

There will be a 45 minute meal break mid-workshop.
