Color Mixing & Theory Workshop

Color Mixing & Theory Workshop

Presented by Bobbi Baldwin at San Clemente Art Supply's Green Flash Gallery

1) What will be covered in the class: The elements of theory relating to mixing color according to how we see (scientifically) using the color wheel, lighting (and shadow) temperature, understanding how and when color bounces or influences the subject near, color mixing, when and how to define the temperature of the color, how to paint from still life, the elements of shadow, color compliments, color transitions, and color terms. 
2) The participants will gain skills: in visually seeing three-dimension and translating it into a two-dimensional surface, in color mixing confidently, knowledge of how to create the best color balance between shadow and light, better compositions, and knowledge of the importance of use for gray and brown. They will also learn many valuable other basic tools as to overall value and ways to make a painting far better than they previously painted. 
3) The activities that the participants will experience: Creation of a reusable color wheel with graphs of primary color mixtures, tint mixtures, gray and brown mixtures, and transition maps for both primary and secondary colors. Each week I will demonstrate while I lecture on the different subjects involved in color theory. I will then have the students apply their newly learned concepts to a still life they will be painting from objects, fruit, and vegetables set up in still life arrangements in the center of the room. 

In this ALL NEW workshop with accomplished instructor, Bobbi Baldwin, students will learn the elements of theory relating to: mixing color according to how we see (scientifically), using the color wheel, lighting (and shadow) temperature, how and when color bounces or influences the subjects, when and how to define the temperature of the color, color matching, color compliments, color transitions, paint pigments, and color terms. Participants will gain skills in color mixing confidently, knowledge of how to create the best color balance between shadow and light by the use of color temperatures, better compositions, and knowledge of the importance of use for gray and brown. Creation of a reusable color wheel with graphs of primary color mixtures, tint mixtures, gray and brown mixtures, and transition maps for both primary and secondary colors. There will be time devoted to demonstration, lecture, and working from sample images and still life.
