|Colour theory for Colour pencil (1)|
Colour theory made simple. Learn how to mix colours, how to create shadows, dynamic combinations and how to choose the layers of colours needed to create any form. This workshop series will cover the basic colour theories, as they apply to colour pencils as well as the specific colour combinations used to create basic colours like black, grey, brown etc. Students will end up with a folio of 'basic rules', which can then be used in every artwork next produced. Learn not only which colours mean what, but the reasons to choose certain colours to create specific effects.
Janet's colour theory translates into use for paint as well as pencil and pastel.
Cost for the series is $175.
