Let’s Boss Around Colour!
Christine Camilleri, Instructor
June 12-13, 2017 (9am-4pm)
Many artists are afraid to turn up the colour volume in their paintings. Most artists become stuck painting only the colours they see and are missing out on taking their work to the next level — and to making artistic statements.
This session will help you bring more creative interest to your work no matter what subject matter you enjoy painting. During our time together we will also touch on these foundational topics as they relate to colour: harmony, values, underpainting and the power of greys. There will be many exercises designed to ground your learning by doing!
There will also be time to work on your own paintings with plenty of support as you gain insight into a new way of looking at and bossing around colour.
Here are what previous workshop participants (of this and other courses) have said:
“Your workshop on color was just as inspiring as it was clarifying. The value study techniques and limited palette exercises you guided us through are ones that I will adapt in my painting process from now on and it made the decision making so much easier. I really believe that it will increase the success rate of my paintings…most of all thank you for releasing me from a local color!!!” Susan T.
“There is so much to learn in this area that a week long workshop might really work well. Please come back to Ontario forever week!! Many thanks!” J. Finnegan
“Great course learned things outside my comfort zone and to loosen up with color. Great workshop! It’s hard to impart ideas and theories in just one day I wish I had had more time really enjoyed the day exclamation mark thank you!
“Your comments were encouraging and meaningful. It is clear you enjoy teaching and were generous in sharing your extensive knowledge.”
“Enjoyed it all…very thought-provoking!” Jay Grant
“Christine was very clear about what she wanted us to learn and her examples and demonstrations were excellent. She was very generous with her time and materials.”
“Best color theory course I’ve ever taken.” A. Wiley
“Really loved the workshop you are a very good teacher” Pat Lindley
“Composition is difficult to grasp yet Christine made it very clear and easy to use. I was able to (finally) learn what makes a painting stand out and things I can use to do that in my own paintings. Thank you so much!” Diane B
