Mixing colors are a challenge for most art students. Therefore, I recently conducted a one day color mixing workshop. Through a series of exercises, attendees were able to get a clearer understanding of how to analyze and mix paint by doing specific color charts.
Preprinted color charts or those done by others are really of little value. To learn to mix colors, YOU must do the work. Learning comes from the doing, not solely by viewing the end result.
Choosing the colors
The color palette of choice for doing the exercises in the color mixing workshop are listed in the following blog post.
Here’s a short video of the class. It’s also my first attempt at making a video. 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!
