About This Class

In this class we'll go over some basic color terminology so that if you've never dabbled in any sort of color media before you won't feel too lost. From there, we'll discuss Color Keys and their relationship to making pictures so that you can understand how you may want to use color in your own pictures. We'll briefly discuss a recommended color palette and some mixing, but the simple exercises will be the majority of the class!

Mark Hill

Fine Artist

I'm a traditionally trained artist currently residing in New York City. I specialize in traditional mediums from graphite and charcoal to oil painting. I've studied in several places in Southern California, and recently finished my studies in New York at the Grand Central Atelier. I've taught everything from drawing to painting for several years, both publicly and privately. Looking to share what I know and help others on Skillshare!
