Do you ever wonder how you can mix paint to make amazing colours or do you create mud when you did not intend to? This class is for you! With step-by-step guided instruction, you will discover distinctive ways to paint colours in your sketchbook to create amazing pages. Each session will build upon each other where you will expand your understanding of colour vocabulary, master colour mixing techniques with a limited palette, appreciate how colour is used as an element of design, and apply colour theory to explore a variety of subjects in your sketchbook. By the end of the course you will feel confident with your colour mixing abilities and have an excellent sketchbook which you can use as a reference for years to come. This course is open to all levels. Some drawing experience is an asset to this course.
