Color Mixing with a Limited Palette

Color Mixing with a Limited Palette

This exciting two-day class for oil painters is designed to give the artist a really useful method of color mixing to achieve consistent, harmonious paintings, and to then apply those skills to palette knife painting. Day One: Students will learn how to use only six oil colors (plus white) to create every color of paint previously purchased one tube at a time. Using this method will set the artist on the way to mastering color temperature, values, and intensity. Note: It is imperative to purchase the exact oil colors given in the supply list. It is also important to use the same brand of paint. (I recommend Utrecht Studio Series.) Day Two: Students will use the lessons on color from day one and focus on reinforcing traditional fundamentals including; values, temperature management, large masses, focal point emphasis, simplification of detail and soft edges…all with a palette knife! No brushesallowed. Learn to identify and solve “problems” ahead of time to ensure beautiful results. Students may use their own well-composed landscape, cityscape or seascape photographs, or use some provided by the instructor. Each student paints his or her own chosen subject matter. This is an interactive, hands-on workshop with extensive demonstration and personal feedback from the instructor. www.rpjfineartstudio.squarespace.com
