Color Mechanics- Saturation and Value

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 2: Saturation and Value- In this class we look at the 4 different shades of black and the two different whites featured in the R&F line. After looking at the attributes that make each of them unique we will mix them with other colors to see how shades and tints work. We will continue our color mixing studies by looking at tertiary colors and how they are mixed from primaries. Again opacity plays a key role.
