Color mixing can be a difficult and hit-or-miss experience without an understanding of the properties of color. With some basic color theory you can learn to mix color from life reliably and with much more enjoyment. Using a limited palette of oil paint, there will be demonstration and exploration of hue, value, temperature and saturation: the main components of color. With red, yellow, blue, green, orange, violet and white we will learn to mix anything we see: the grey of a wet sidewalk, sunlight on skin, a shaded tree trunk.

There will be clear demonstration and lots of mixing time with oil paint. We will use images from the art library to show how these principles have been understood throughout art history.  If you want a more connected relationship to your palette and the use of color, please reserve a spot in this one day workshop. Limited to 10 participants.

Saturday June 29th, 2019  from 930 to 12 pm.  This workshop is by donation and includes instruction, all materials and coffee/tea/cornbread. Please email me if you would like a spot held for you: Jason @ or call at 802 380 4997.
