Explore Color Harmonies Using Simple Logic

You will never see colors the same way after this workshop!

Learn simple and logical ways to mix and create color combinations in your paintings that are just right. The slideshow presentations and painting demos will help you harmonize colors in a more logical and simplified way. Along the way we’ll expand your color ranges into previously unexplored territories.

In this workshop you’ll learn how to:
· Mix colors to get a wide range of shades of muted and saturated colors
· Add harmonizing colors to your painting while avoiding clashing colors
· Use the color wheel to explore color combinations
·Create color studies to explore color combination possibilities before starting your painting
· Apply historically popular color themes
· Apply basic rules of color and emotions

Both online and in person workshops will include painting demos, student work feedback sessions, slideshow presentations, and eye training exercises. These combinations of activities are designed to help refine your painting techniques and observation skills. Photo references will be provided for all painting assignments. Students are welcome to bring their own photo references for their own paintings.

In person workshops will have extended painting sessions. During these sessions, students will get one-on-one mentoring from Wayne.

Online workshop students will have access to download a video file of the painting demo to refer to so they can paint along at home at their own pace. There will be critiques at the beginning of some of the classes.
