Art Workshop Wednesday 22nd June - ‘Exploring Colour’
This product is currently sold out.
Join us for our second art workshop with Tessa Sulston from the Callington School of Art.
Learn how to make colour from colours. It’s always the more subtle colours that are difficult so I will open your eyes to a more logical rather than haphazard way of mixing! Very small amounts of a colour will change colours quite dramatically.
Learn how to read the relationships between colour and tone, warm and cool colours, light and dark, intense and dull, colour hues and complementary colours.
We will look at the different ways artists use colour through a series of colour exercises.
The workshop will open your eyes to the full range of colours you never thought existed.
What to Bring:
A set of watercolours either in tubes or pans.
A good basic set has at least 2 reds, 2 yellows, 2 blues 2 greens and 3 browns.
Generally it should have: cadmium red, alizarin, ultramarine, cobalt or cerulean, cadmium yellow, lemon yellow, sap green, viridian, burnt sienna, raw umber and yellow ochre. If you have more colours then add them in.
