It is not unusual for color theory to leave artists scratching their heads when it comes time to deal with real paint, canvas, and inspiration. How does one make use of color theory? If you would like a more practical understanding of how color works and how to make better use of it, this informative and entertaining crash course on color is for you. Over two consecutive days, Brad will help you build a better working relationship with that elusive thing called color. Lessons and demonstrations will address essential issues like color terms and why they are important; organizing your palette; controlling the intensity of your color mixes; value problems vs. color problems; ‘warm’ and ‘cool’ colors; and an introduction to making use of color schemes. This workshop is an excellent introduction to practical color theory and a great foundation for Brad’s more in-depth color class, Oil Painting: Creating Color Harmonies. Open to all oil painters. Bring a lunch for the break during class.
