Beginning Painting Part 2: Exploration of Color

This class is for students who have taken Beginning Oil Painting at least once.

This class picks up where Beginning Oil Painting leaves off with a structured exploration of color theory. How to develop a palette for your painting?  How do you find the colors your painting needs?

In this class for oil painters, color theory will expand into practical applications for more fascinating and useful ways of seeing, organizing, and making colors. Through a series of painting studies and color sketches, students will expand their palette and comfort with paint mixing and layering. Using inspirations from science, nature, paintings, and discovery, this class will lead painters into a broad understanding of color expressions with depth and mood.

MATERIALS:

Painters will need a warm and cool of each hue, as well as some glazing colors. Don’t break the bank! Bring what you have. Paint recommendations below, from the Gamblin 1980 line:
