In this course each person will each create their own fabulous scrapbook that will remind you about all you have learnt over the 2 days . We will fill the scrapbook with annotated examples of mixed colours and colour theory. You can then add to your scrapbook as you progress through your painting journey.
We will look at and understand
The colour wheel
Colour contrast and energy
The effect of different papers; hot pressed and not hot pressed and absorbant
Desaturation of strong colours
Useful colours such as burnt umber
We will learn to mix a range of soft greys and natural tones and also a range of strong colours and understand why colour mixing can fail.
We will look at famous artists and their use of colour and why it works.
All materials and scrapbook are provided. Please bring brushes, and scissors for paper.
