This workshop takes all the guesswork out of how to mix and use color properly.  The focus is solely on practical understanding and application, not theory. If you have trouble working with color then this workshop is a must do.  You will develop confidence, understanding, knowledge and skill in using the color families and how neutrals can help to make your paintings exciting. Discover what analogous, complementary and neutral colors can do to create visual beauty and harmony in your work.  Class projects will create a color notebook that includes your personal notes and examples as a permanent reference for your studio. The class is appropriate for all wet paint mediums including oil, acrylic and watercolor. All students from novice to advanced intermediate skill levels benefit from this instruction.
