Color: Get It Right Every Time!
August 23 - 26, 2012
Medium: Oil, Acrylic, Gouache, Pastel, or Watercolor
Level: All Levels
3-Day Studio Class
If you are struggling with choosing and mixing color, this is the workshop for you. After presenting the basics of how to compose strong compositions with value, Elin will take you on a journey through color to finished paintings. Based upon sound scientific knowledge, colors will be introduced for their behavior relative to the way the human eye sees, creating a solid foundation of understanding. Using the strong values of the compositions, students will paint from their own copy, logically thinking and making good choices about which color to use, and where. Issues of time of day and the character of the light will be applied to the colors to demonstrate early morning, late morning, midday, afternoon and sunset light.
