Working with color in painting can be like navigating relationships: some personalities find conversation effortless, while others seem to never find agreement. Every new color introduced into a painting can potentially alter an existing balance. This course approaches color mixing as a dialogue, and provides you with the knowledge and practical techniques to master relationships across the three basic elements of color structure: hue, value, and chroma. While acknowledging the importance of intuition and spontaneity, you will gain a clear and direct approach to working with palettes, finding grayscales within color, and understanding saturated and neutral color. This thorough introduction is suitable for acrylic and oil-based painters of all levels!
