About This Class

With so much information out there to learn on colour, at times it can get quite overwhelming. That’s why I’m sharing how I’ve levelled up my own ability with colour!

Instead of dumping a whole universe of colour theory on you, I’m teaching you three simple things that can immediately improve the colour in your work. All you need to do is learn the step-by-step techniques I outline and apply it to your own art. No extensive studying. No confusing terms. No problem!

You walk away with how to use solid colour and gradients with blending modes over already-created artwork, as well as adjustment layers in Photoshop to alter colour in your artwork, however there is nothing that actually helps you in developing your colour in new artwork - choosing palettes, harmonizing those palettes, creating contrast, etc. - this is class only teaches you a couple extremely basic Illustrator and Photoshop functions which are only beneficial to Adobe beginners. If you're looking for a few easy tips on how to add / change basic colour in artwork that you've already created, this is for you. If you're looking for help with how to create dynamic colour, come up with palettes and the process on how to do that efficiently, then this class is not for you. Great teacher.
