The range of colours offered by nature is immense. If we then add the variety of textures and the varying influence of the light there is a great deal to consider. The floral artist or botanical illustrator faces a considerable challenge in portraying even a tiny part of this array. This mini course will enable you to explore colour use and mixing and will develop into 20 attractive paintings.
The ‘mini’ courses provide a series of exercises based on the paintings in our Colour Notes series. The exercises are completed following detailed information in each book. Each finished exercise becomes a painting in its own right and builds into a full colour mixing reference. This is definitely NOT a ‘painting by numbers’ approach but a program designed to teach ‘colour mixing and use through practical exercises.
The mini course is presented in an attractive presentation binder with protective translucent sleeves and consists of: Exercise sheets printed on 140 lb acid/free watercolour paper or acid/free textured oil painting paper. A printed laminated practice mixing palette and full instructions.
The mini course is available in two versions:
- For watercolours, gouache and thinly applied acrylics
- For oils or heavily applied acrylics
