In this really practical, informative workshop John Dinan will bring you step-by-step through Colour Theory, Colour Mixing and Colour Harmony for artists, and how to make it work in your paintings, through a series of straightforward painting exercises. Bring your skill to an entirely new level through a deep understanding of How Colour Works for Artists.
You will understand the difference between such terms as Tone, Hue, Tint, Chroma, Shade, Permanence, Transparency and many more colour issues that cause needless confusion to artists. You will also be able to paint a Colour Wheel for yourself, using a special template that John will demonstrate to you.Over the three days you will practice many colour exercises and paint several small simple landscapes in different colour schemes to discover how you can control and create different Moods in your paintings –developing great insight, control and confidence in How Colour Works for artists.
Join this workshop and begin to take control of colour in your paintings – through a clear understanding of How Colour Works.
Suitable for all levels of experience from Beginners to Advanced, using oils or acrylics, but demonstrations in this workshop are with oil paints.
“A painting is made of thousands of paint strokes. And EVERY stroke of paint you place on your canvas has three distinct characteristics – which is why Colour can be a mystery to many artists – it’s probably the most difficult thing to master in painting.”
