Title: Further Adventures in Colour!

Afternoon – Introduction to Colour Tone: determine the tone (value) of a colour.

Afternoon – Introduction to beautiful neutrals using near complements.

Afternoon – Play Creatively with Colour, Tone and Temperature.
Please remember to bring a bag lunch, snacks and drinks. Food and beverages are also available in the gift shop.
DESCRIPTION: The workshop begins with a clear and simplified explanation of basic colour theory and how we experience colour in the world. Next, we face the challenge of determining colour tone in the real world and on our palettes. From that strong foundation and working with a limited palette of six pigments we mix beautiful neutrals that enhance our fully saturated hues. Finally, having added skills to our colour toolbox, we pull it all together, with a dash of determining the temperature of our hues.
