June 19, 2021
When: June 19th @ 11am (1.5hr Demo)
Join professional artist and keen oil painter Sheree Jones as she shares her tips & techniques on colour mixing with a limited palette. Using just seven warm & cool colours plus white, Sheree will show you why these tried and true colours work for her, both in the studio, and outdoors “en plein air”.
In this informative presentation you will learn:
- How to make a good variety of darks, and a vast array of grays (without black)
- How to use complementary colours to your best advantage
- How to assess the temperature and value of your colour mixes
Sheree’s fun loving spirit and her passion for sharing her knowledge is sure to inspire all who attend. This demo will be geared towards painting in painting in Oil and Acrylic and will be wonderful for folks interested in using a limited palette of colours in their painting practice.
