Colour In Theory And Practice

About Colour In Theory And Practice

This practical workshop is aimed at those with a little or no experience with painting with oils. Over two three hour long sessions, artist Robert McAdam will guide you into the art of colour mixing and oil painting. We will look at primary, secondary, tertiary, complementary and analogous colours, analyse the most important pigments in common usage and understand how to lighten/brighten. Both sessions will include practical painting exercises and a demo of how to hand grind pigment.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Colour In Theory And Practice are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
