3 Day OnLine Watermedia Workshop - Commanding Color
This course designed to inspire your creativity by learning to “see” and experience some of the different aspects of color theory and painting light on objects. Color is one of the elements of design! This course is designed to inspire adv. beginners and provide a review and challenge for the advanced student.
My goal as an instructor is to present you with as much design and color theory information as time allows and encourage you to take advantage of the inherent wet into wet qualities of watercolor.
I believe in the power of planning and understanding the basics. The objective is not to change you, but to add to your core of knowledge. Then it is up to you to take this knowledge and apply it to the style and subject matter that suits you.
This workshop will deal with all aspects of color theory.
We will be working with a limited palette of acrylics (see supply list); and watercolors occasionally if you are a watercolorist. There will be lectures, projects, and assignments for afternoon painting getting ready for the next day.
Our objective is to make you more sensitive to color and therefore your use of color.
