About This Class

Hello fellow artists! I have taught many classes, both in person and online, on many subjects. We have gone trough the basics of watercolor, how to create textured patterns to make your paintings more interesting, how to mix your watercolours with different supplies and even how to paint complex pieces of jewelry.

Now I am feeling like we need to go back to basics and take a close look at how we use color.  I know how exciting a blank piece of paper can be, and many times we just end up using EVERY SINGLE color in our palette! I love rainbows too, but sometimes less is more and choosing certain colors help give our work personality, meaning and intention.

I have developed certain activities that will help you discover your own personal palette. We will go through the basics of color mixing, the color wheel, complimentary colors, warm and cool tones, you will practice painting different color combinations with certain themes in mind and lastly create your very own abstract painting focusing on intuitive color mixing.

Discover the power of color!
