Chapel Cottage Studio & Gallery
Llanddew Rhydderch, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, Wales NP7 9TT
Title: The Anti-Color / Colour Design Workshop
Morning Session- Seeing colour as tone rather than hue.
Afternoon Session- Using colour temperature for interest and movement without altering the tone (value) of a significant shape.
A delicious lunch is provided!
Strong design is what makes a person walk across a room to get a better look at a painting. It is the hook that keeps the viewer exploring a work of art rather than moving on to something else. Design does not depend on masterful drawing or painting skills. Nor does it depend on mastery of color theory. Design depends on the relationship of shapes to one another and the choice of tone (value) and temperature of the shapes. The hue of a color is its least important characteristic when it comes to Design.
Fee: $70 USD ($55 USD if you are also attending the Colour Workshop in Swansea on October 3, 4 & 5 or The Court Cupboard Colour Workshop on October 10, 11 & 12)

Permanent Fine Tip marker such as Sharpie or Pigma Micron (02, 03 or 05)
Sketchbook (any size, but minimum of 5” x 7”)
Watercolour brushes – I suggest a round #10 and a round #6 with a good point. Three containers for water
Painting smock or apron if you wish
Watercolour tubes, not pans (One each of any cool yellow, warm yellow, cool blue, warm blue, cool red and warm red) A total of six tubes of watercolour pigment, two yellows, two blues & two reds.) See listing of pigments, at the end of this list, to determine your choices.
Watercolor mixing palette, preferably a circular palette with ten to twelve wells.
A separate mixing palette of any sort.
Watercolour paper (hot press and/or cold press) or small watercolour pad (quality paper, not student grade) approximately 11” x 14”. Four sheets should be plenty. I like using Rives BFK Printmaking Paper for exploring colour schemes., but feel free to use your favorite paper, one that you enjoy painting on and you are familiar with how it responds to paint.
