Workshops & Exhibitions
My workshop program continues this year with the colour mixing workshop below in February 2017. There will also be a more advanced version of the colour mixing workshop another whole day event in March 2017. If you are interested in taking part in any of the workshops the details are below.
WORKSHOP 1 – Sun 19th February 2017
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
A NOT TO BE MISSED EVENT IF YOU WANT TO GET A GOOD GRASP ON COLOUR MIXING!!!This is a one day workshop in colour mixing from the ground up. Colour mixing explained in very simple terms with hands on practice and a work book to go with it. Are you frustrated with your colour mixing efforts? If so this is a must do session to get your colour under control!
- You will go away with a very clear idea of not only basic colour mixing but also a clear understanding of terms like Hue, Value,Complimentary Colours, and what this all means in regards to any given painting you might do.
- You will also learn what happens when you don’t get it right, as it is my belief that this is just as, if not more important than getting it right. If you don’t know why you’ve ended up with mud then how can you possibly fix it.
- Understanding the science of colour mixing makes your life so much easier when you are painting. It takes a lot of the guesswork out of the equation and saves you dollops of time and money in the long run.
- Experience the joy of getting the colour you want to see on your palette rather than a muddy version of it.
- You learn to gauge which particular colours you need and the relative strength of each one.
- What did others think about this workshop
