It’s finally starting to smell like spring in New Jersey and I’m leaving it behind for awhile to head west and teach my favorite color workshop in Sebastopol, California. I’m looking forward to seeing good friends and to meeting new friends. And … I can’t wait to smell the eucalyptus and bay trees!
Exploring color becomes more exciting for me every day. The more I learn, the more I want to experiment. I love discovering wonderful combinations of hues, saturations and the almost magical influence that neutrals have on more saturated hues. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to share this joy and the simplicity of the journey with other artists. My greatest weakness (color) has become one of my greatest strengths and, like drawing, I know for a fact that it can be taught and learned as long as the desire to explore and master color is present.
Color can be subtle yet rich.
Color can be bold.
Color can be playfully dabbed.
Color can be applied meticulously, within the limits of lines and forms.
Color can hold true to the color of objects.
Color can be applied simply according to its value rather than its hue.
Color can be used to define shapes without any regard at all to reality.
The joy of color! I look forward to sharing my color journey with you!
