In this class we will dive deeply into color. Color is very important, it sets the mood for your piece and if the colors you choose are not harmonious, your work will suffer. Mixing colors is equally if not more important, and so many people don’t know the basics of mixing. If you find yourself guilty of using paint straight from the tube, don’t worry it’s not a bad thing, but knowing how to mix will take your paintings to a whole new level. You will have full control of the colors on the page and will make colors that are one of a kind. Not to mention, you will save a lot of money, not needing to buy every color out there. In this class you will learn:

  • How to Mix on a Pallet
  • How to Mix Any Color
  • Tone Down Colors
  • Mixing Brown, Gray, and Black 
  • Make a Color Wheel Chart
  • Mixing on the Page 
  • The Basics of Color Theory
  • Collecting Color Inspiration
  • Make Harmonious Color Combinations
  • Make Your Own Inspiring Palettes

By the end of the class you will feel confident in working with colors and will feel more inspired to paint. If you master the basic techniques covered in this class, you are half way to becoming a color master, with time and practice you will start picking and mixing colors without thinking about it. This class will speed up the learning process. What are you waiting for? Enroll now to start your color journey!

I am a graphic designer and I learn about colours in classes but I felt like I learn more in this class more than I did in college. Great exercises and easy to understand! :)

Really great introduction. Perfect for beginners
A good review of the primary colors and the effects each color has on the others. Well worth the time to complete this course.
