I have been painting for nearly 20 years and in
that time have been lucky to have learnt many
techniques from attending workshops, reading
books, watching videos and looking at art both
at home and abroad.
Now that I have retired I run a Friday painting
class where I love to share the things I have
learnt along the way. I find myself also
learning from everyone in the class as we share
our ideas and learn together.
I love colour
and finding out as much as I can about it has
become a real journey for me. We use many Triads
- Complementary colour mixing - Split Triads -
glazing etc. and working with tonal values. The
freedom of learning to mix the colour you want
sets you free to use the colours you love,
not the colour someone else tells you to use.
You form your own colour identity.
We often have talks about colour mixing in class
it is a big part of what we do.
Colour mixing can get you hooked like it has me.
Please call in and see how our class works it
may be you would like to join us on our journey.
