BOYB (Build On Your Basics) - Using Color Level 2

Instructor: Lori Sokoluk
Location(s): Vancouver
Topic(s): Colour Theory
January 24, 2018 - February 7, 2018

Do you wonder why your paintings feel muddy or dull, or why they don't create the mood you're trying to convey?

Do you have a basic sense of how to mix colors, but aren't sure which colors to use to create the effects you want?

Join me at my studio to deepen your mastery of color. This workshop will build on the Color Mixing Bootcamp, or on the knowledge you already have about working with color. You will come away with a solid foundation in the most important aspects of color mixing, including:

- increased confidence in mixing clear bright colors
- understanding the value of neutrals and how to get them
- master subtle variations of color for interest and complexity
- my copyrighted simple color wheel that encapsulates these lessons for future reference
- understanding the emotional impact of color

and unique to this workshop:

- tackle a specific color challenge that you are experiencing
- get to know a new color that you’re eager to try out
- personalized color review and guidance for one of your own paintings (bring the original or a true-color print)

This is part of my small group studio-based workshop series. Max 8 students.

Basic familiarity with color mixing and the paint medium you choose to use (acrylics or watercolors recommended, but the concepts apply to oils and other painting mediums as well).
Supply List: 
  • basic paints (acrylics or watercolors recommended)
  • palette (your preference)
  • notebook and pen/pencil for taking notes
  • brush(es) (3/4" flat and/or #10 round or similar)
