Facing a palette loaded with colours can be the most daunting task about being an artist. Even though it seems impossible, your palette of just a few pigments can accurately emulate any colour you see. Through practical studio sessions working from live setups, we will delve deep into mystery of colour mixing. We will get to know each colour on our palette along with their characteristics and roles in painting. We will examine components like hue tendency, value and chroma and put them into play so they work to help us mix any color in our sight. Complimentary color theory, temperature and types of light are subjects we will cover thoroughly.
*Beginners and advanced painters will benefit from this course.
