Color can be confusing – figuring out how to mix a color or deciding what color goes where.  The focus of this class is learning how to use color effectively in acrylic landscape paintings.  I will walk students step by step through how to mix colors with various exercises from mixing colorful grays to a gazillion greens.  I will show you how to make rich color the star of the show and share the three questions I ask whenever I mix a color.

I will paint several demos throughout the workshop showing the class how I approach a landscape painting from composition to deciding when a painting is finished sharing my color secrets along the way.  There will also be plenty of time for the class to paint from their own landscape photos with me providing individual instruction.

If you want to learn how to use color in your landscapes or you are just tired of buying all those tubes of paint and “tubing it” then this is the class for you.    This class is appropriate for all levels – from beginner to advanced.
