About This Class

In this class, we will tap into our inner watercolor geeks to better understand how pigment properties affect our ability to mix colors. The technical side of watercolors can seem intimidating at first. However, I'll teach you how the colors we select for our palettes can limit or expand our ability to mix additional colors.

In this class, we will explore:
• The difference between RBY & CMY primary triads
• How to identity warm and cool colors
• How to read pigment information on watercolor labels
• How individual pigment properties like granulation and transparency affect color mixing

This class is intended for beginners or anyone who would like to learn more about color theory and pigment properties as they apply to watercolor.
