A Question of Colour....
As we get older and develop our skills as artists ,Colour theory is often far down the list of priorities. A new technique, method or medium seems to take the stage and "Boring old colour theory" is placed on the back burner. So can we move it to the front of the line?...can we make it fun?Can we make it VITAL? make it IMPORTANT to the student? Can we make it the I HAVE TO TRY THAT product of the year?. Now how the heck are we gonna do that?
ok... I have an idea . it's in the form of a challenge.... Choose two primary colours, plus white
Once you have finished it, scan it or take a pic, write a paragraph detailing what you learned from it. Email it to me and I'll post the results here. Then we'll move on to Tertiary colours..lol
This is not a test of your artistic abilites, it's not a test at all, just try it, you may surprise yourself with how much you DO know and how much fun it can be to paint using such a limited palette.
Come On .. Try it...I'll be painting right along with you..... I am waiting to see what you create!!
