Start off the new year with a new skill! In this two-hour beginner's class, Karen will take you through some simple colour-mixing techniques which will help you paint with confidence. Learn how to mix a huge range of colours from a small selection of paints, creating a set of mini pictures as we go.
We’ll start off with the absolute basics of colour mixing using just a small set of primary colours, creating a wide range of tints and tones – you will never need to buy lots of different tubes of paint ever again! From there we will explore harmonious and complimentary palettes and how to make a painting ‘pop,’ using a variety of exercises.
From colour swatches to creative compositions – this is a fun way to play with pigments, learn a little colour theory and create some mini works of art along the way. You can work-along in watercolour, gouache or acrylics – the emphasis is on understanding colour rather than specific paint techniques.
Specific skills you will learn
- Basics of colour mixing using ‘Process Colours’ (or their equivalent)
- Understanding harmonious and complimentary palettes
- Using contrast to make a painting ‘pop’
- Exploring transparency & opacity
All Ardington ONLINE classes and talks are accompanied by their own online blackboard. Helpful and easy to use, they enable students and tutors to share resources, ideas and photos with each other – just as you would in a classroom environment.
Karen will offer feedback via the blackboard for any work uploaded by students within thirty days of the class ending. You will be sent the link to access your blackboard in the week before your class begins and will have access for at least sixty days after the class ends.
After the live session has finished on Zoom, we will share the link to view the recording on the blackboard. You can watch the recording as many times as you like for sixty days.
We suggest that you do not buy any specialist materials more than one week in advance as, occasionally, a class may be cancelled due to low enrolment.
