Color Mechanics- Temperature and Texture

Class Level: Appropriate for all experience levels. This class is part of a series, participants are not required to take all classes in the series. 

The Color Mechanics series of workshops looks at fundamental concepts of color theory and gradually builds to a greater understanding of color complexity. Lectures and exercises in this workshop will lay out the many different aspects of color relationships that affect mixing, harmony, and composition. We take a unique approach to color theory, using a palette selected from the R&F Pigment Stick line. Working with actual colors and paint mediums that you have available in your studio give you knowledge that translates seamlessly into your painting practice. All skill levels are welcome, you don't need any background in painting, all we require is a serious interest in how color works.

Week 3: Temperature and Texture- All colors have a bias to them, in this class we explain how colors unfold through a color wheel toward warm and cool temperatures. We will then continue to look at opacity and the relationship this has to the visual depth created with layering translucent colors. As we add complexity to the color interactions surface and texture become additional attributes to be aware of.
