Color Theory Workshop Part II: Analogous Colors, Monochromatic Values, and Complementary Shadows - SATURDAY 7/7

125.00

As I stated in the Basic Color Theory Part I section, color theory is the foundation for all great painters. It is an absolute necessity for creating a balanced, visually interesting work because it is the driving force behind good composition and movement. Color knowledge will give you control over your painting’s mood, light, integrity, and presence.

Now that you have learned the basics, we will dive deeper into how colors relate to each other. This class will begin with magazine article exercise, and you will be encouraged to bring one magazine to use and share. We will delve deeper into understanding Analogous Colors, Values, Intensity, and Complementary Colors.

This will include an exercise on mixing color. The class will end with creating a still life using complementary shadows.

We will work in acrylics. All materials provided. Please bring a sack lunch and reusable water bottle, or you may walk to a local sandwich shop/coffee shop. Dress for art-making! This class follows Part I Basics, and is a preferable prerequisite to Part III: Grisaille Self Portraiture with Water-based Oil Glaze.

Dates for Color Theory Workshop Part II (this is the SATURDAY option). Classes are limited to six students.

  • Saturday July 7, 9am to 4pm (one hour lunch break)

  • Sunday July 8, 9am to 4pm (one hour lunch break)

I have been teaching painting for fifteen years, both private lessons as well as at the following Colorado campuses: The University of Colorado (Boulder), Metro State University (Denver) and Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design (Denver).
