"Color Theory for Painters"
February 29, 2024
 

Imagine 6 specific colors - reds, blues and yellows -- that will change the way you paint and how you see and mix colors. Now imagine using these colors to achieve clear, bright colors, the illusion of distance, volume, depth and shadow! This is a hands-on full-day workshop to immerse yourself in color possibilities and put your learning into practice. Come prepared to paint along in the medium of your choice as Alex introduces, in a step-by-step manner, some surprising color combinations that make for brighter, more intense and fresh colors, and how to alter them to create the illusion of distance and shadow. In the afternoon we will paint from still life to practice using our colors.
