Mixing Colour... Matching Tone

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

There's a lot to think about in painting and one of the best ways to gain mastery is to focus on one skill and when you master that, choose another.

So that is what we'll do in this workshop... focus on one skill.  Well, actually it's two that are very closely related!

1.  Identifying and painting tonal/value relationships - including identifying colour as a value, effective use of tonal relationships.

2.  Mixing colour to the correct hue, value and saturation - including how to mix a particular colour, making colourful greys, avoiding mud, when/where to use more saturated colour, laying out your palette, using a limited palette and more.

In a regular painting workshop we cover a lot of ground.  They are inspirational and you can learn a lot, but unless the workshop spans several days there is not the opportunity to spend a lot of time on specific skills. 

That's why I hold not only regular workshops but also ones that hone in on specifics that will help to further your art, whether it's drawing, brushwork, composition or as in this case, colour and tone. 

So if you feel your use of colour and tone could use a bit more attention... then this workshop is the perfect place to start!
