Project Description

You can upload your exercises and the final project. No need to upload everything at once, just show what you want to share as you go through the class at your own pace. I really want you guys to inspire each other and just have fun with color!

For an example, you can view my sample project.

Exercises:

  • Color Wheel
  • Intuitive Mixing
  • Color Play

Final Project

To start the final project, first get inspired from other art or from color pallets found online. You can share your pinterest board if you made one. Here's mine. You could also use Adobe's free tool. Then, once you're inspired, create pallets that are based on images you like or colors you want to explore. Try out mixing on the pallet and then see how the colors interact with mixing on the page. Upload your favorite results. Just have fun and experiment! I can't wait to see what you make! :)
