Color Mixing Workshop, June 25th, 2011


Hello Everyone,
I have been asked to do a color mixing workshop by several of you and here we go!!
The workshop will be on Saturday June 25th from 9 AM to 4 PM at the Pinnell Gallery located at 124 N. Main Avenue,  760-728-8870. 
During this time we will go over mixing warm primaries with cold primaries to get most colors used in Plein Air and Studio paintings. Also adjusting the values of each of the dominant colors and neutralizing them with their compliments.
Supplies needed:
  • 3 Bristle Brushes- Flats, size no bigger than a six. If you have them already just make sure they are very clean.
  • Paint: Alizarin Crimson, Cad. Red Light, Cad. Yellow Light, Cad. Yellow Medium, Cerulean Blue, Ultramarine Blue, White, Black
  • Palette for mixing paints on
  • Palette knife for mixing paints
  • Odorless Turpenoid
  • Paper towels
I will supply the canvas to paint the squares of color on.
All mediums welcome! Supplies are noted for oil painters, artists please adjust supplies as needed for your mediums.
The fee is $60. We will break at noon for lunch.
Please email me and let me know you will be attending asap, I will have to know how many pieces of canvas to make up. If you cannot attend let me know and I will get a future date together to accommodate the artists who cannot make the 25th.
