CLASS / WORKSHOP | COLOUR HARMONY: MAKING THE MOST OF A LIMITED PALETTE
Saturday, November 7, 2015, 10:30 am–1 pm

Mixing colours that glow and don't turn muddy is one of the trickiest challenges when learning to paint with watercolour. The fewer pigments we use, the clearer and more harmonious our results will be. Kateri will demonstrate the use of three different limited palettes of five or six pigments to show the vast variety of colours that can be achieved.
Participants will look into the differences between pigment characteristics such as transparency, lightfastness, granulation and staining and the importance of achieving a balance between warm and cool pigments. Create a colour chart from a selection of pigments from your own paints after creating a variety of limited palettes using the information learned.
