Understanding and making use of color schemes is an exciting and accessible way to apply color theory in a practical way. Participants will learn to create vibrant and harmonious paintings by learning to use and apply standard color schemes like Complementary, Split-Complementary, Analogous, Triads, and Tetrads. Using a palette organized around the three primaries and white, with the addition of a couple of earth colors, the class will learn about and explore practical ways to apply color theory. Exercises will include a review of basic color terms and color mixing in addition to learning about color schemes. Subject matter will be simple-shape still life and landscape images provided by the teacher with the goal of applying what has been learned to an individual project. This is a great class for the beginning oil painter or for experienced artists who are interested in creating more dynamic paintings. If you are new to color theory, see the catalog for Brad’s summer workshop, Oil Painting: Color Crash Course. Bring a lunch for the break during class.
