The course will present a basic working knowledge of color theory that is practical to oil painting and the mixing of pigment colors. Using colorful and complex still life as a subject, students will acquire a mixing discipline as they complete a series of small oil paintings throughout the class. Each class will begin with an instructional lecture with demonstrations to understand color through phases of pure saturation, tint, shade, and tone. Students will then move into painting their own still life images using a variety of palette and mixing choices. By the end of this course, students will walk away with a strong grasp on practical color mixing, methods to identify their own color palette, and an understanding of basic paint and pigment properties.
This class is perfect for any level painter. Beginners will find a road map to accelerate their painting practice in very practical terms. More advanced students will learn intricacies in painting that will enable them to refine their painting practice to the next level.
Students should bring three or four small painting surfaces (11x14), a couple of reliable brushes and palette knives, palette, and a basic assortment of oil colors (prismatic primary red, yellow and blue; white; an umber; a sienna; and an ochre.)
