This course is a must for all who wish to paint.  A basic skill for any artist is to feel fully confident to mix any and every colour that they want to from bright lime green through to sludgy plums and a 300 different greys.  We will start to understand how and why some of the world’s great artists use different colours in their paintings and how they can inspire us to expand our own use of colour.

The Course

The 2 day course is suitable for complete beginners or those who are experienced painters but would like to build colour mixing and theory confidence and skills.  We learn in watercolour and acrylics as they are good teaching mediums.  If you have questions about colour mixing in other mediums we will cover that. No drawing skills required.

As with all our courses, the subject is a vehicle for learning different artistic skills that build our technical tool kit. 

We will learn ……

Coffee, cake and a delicious home cooked, healthy lunch with wine are included.

Arrive from 9.30am, for coffee before a 10am start.  The day finishes at 4.30pm.
