COLOR MIXING and APPLICATIONS:
Whether you work in oils, acrylics, or watercolor, color is color!!! Understanding color and using color to strengthen your visual statement is very important. We will work with juxtaposed color application, color temperatures, and color harmonies! Many times a few simple changes in the colors we choose can make or break a painting. Included will be a discussion on color theory as to color, hue, and intensity in our paintings. Provided will be primary mixing colors that we will use to achieve endless color possibilities. See how applying color can visually help show depth, distance, and volume in your paintings!
