Course:

Colour allows for the most emotional response of all the tools at an artist’s disposal. Nevertheless, it has been so mystified that many misconceptions still linger on. This workshop will help you to set things straight, becoming a much more efficient painter. Colour mixing is based on a series of fundamental laws that will grant you visible results.
In this practical workshop you will also learn about:
- Modern and ancient colour theory
- Principles for colour harmony and some different trends in western painting
- Colour wheels and the problem of primary colours
- Temperature shifts in coloured light sources
- Colour strings for more effective shading and depth of form
- The most effective ways of neutralising a colour
- Misconceptions about the use of black and the most effective ways of using it
- Terminology to accurately describe and understand colour, especially hue, value and Chroma
- Flesh tones and how to realistically render skin
- Performance of different brands of paint and how to get the best value for money
