Color mixing – A method out of madness
February 28—March 2, 2014
Do you feel frustrated figuring out how to mix the exact color you want, like you’re starting from scratch every time you paint? Do you want a simple and easy method for mixing the correct color consistently? Seamus will cover palette layout, use of grayscale, color mixing, exercises in creating color harmonies, working with contrasts and color temperature.
Learn how to keep yourself organized by setting up and using your palette efficiently. This simple technique will allow you more freedom in your painting process.
This workshop will focus on developing methods for finding and mixing the color you want every time you paint. We’ll be creating color charts and grey scales that will become a permanent record that you can use as your personal mixing reference for years! You will learn the steps necessary to complete your personalized charts during the weeks after the workshop. As this weekend will concentrate on practical methods, it will be beneficial to painters working in any genre.
Topics covered will include:
- color mixing
- color value
- creating color charts
