Improve your acrylic painting color techniques with fast, loose, and bold instruction from Patti Mollica!
Join Patti in this video workshop that will explore the color wheel, teach you about color schemes, and give you a good understanding of color relationships. You'll go through four color exercises with Patti as your guide and learn to translate one value plan into four different color schemes. Along the way, you'll learn tips for working with a complementary color scheme, ways to work on a triadic color scheme, and how to achieve color harmony in your paintings. Plus, most importantly, you'll learn to take a playful and exploratory approach to color--your painting won't be bound by only using the colors you see in your reference material. Once you learn the essentials of value foundations, you can play with color and have fun incorporating any colors that suit your artist vision. The key to making color work is learning rules, then learning to have fun with your painting!
