Color Theory/3 Color Palette Workshop/Learning to Quick Sketch in Paint

1:00-4:30 pm
Cost:$65.00 (not including materials)

This class will give you an overview of color principles and color mixing with demonstrations and student projects.

The elements of color, including value, temperature, saturation, hierarchy,
complements, light, harmony and contrast.
The use of color complements and learning how to mix vibrant and muted colors naturally with complementary colors to create a harmonious painting.
Using a limited palette in Acrylics (open or using OPEN GLOSS MEDIUM to slow down the drying time) or Oils this is for absolute beginners and a refresher for intermediates who want a quicker more reliable way of finding colors you want faster.
We would also use a method to color match for a couple of small paintings 6x6 which will show us how to create the color and match it to what we are seeing.
Through a series of demonstrations, you’ll learn how to work with color and ultimately make better color decisions.

For those that are intermediate students, you will be creating small 6 x 6 quick paintings practicing using a 3-4 color palette. I will provide the still life set up and/or printouts.

Materials List:

Oil Painters-

Either quality paint: Gamblin/Rembrandt/or Gamblin 1980(student grade) preferred over Winton. Titanium white prefer Gamblin/Rembrandt/Sennellier brand not Gamblin 1980 brand or student brand as it isn’t as strong of a pigment and good to mix.
Colors —-
Cadmium yellow light
Alizarin Crimson
Ultramarine Blue

Gamblin gel medium (this dries faster) preferred
or Gamblin solvent free gel small tube

Acrylic Painters- same colors as oil.
Golden Open Acrylics or regular Acrylics:

“OPEN” brand means that there is a slow drying medium put into the
paint, so it is workable like oils.
