Do you have a color "strategy" before you start a painting, or do you simply hope the color will work out in the end? Have you ever wished you had more freedom with color?  Do you know how to mix the colors you are aiming for or is it a hit-or-miss process?

Color is one of the most important elements in the success of your painting.  Many painters feel bound by the colors they see, which can lead to predictable paintings that lack drama, no matter how well they are painted. It's important to learn how to harness the power of color and use it to communicate your artistic vision.

In this three day workshop, learn the "theory" behind mixing colors, learn how "less is more" for good color harmony with in your palette, and learn to work with the colors of your choice, and more, while working this knowledge into your painting of a provided still life
