In this one-day intensive workshop, a restricted palette is taught for the purpose of building a knowledge of color theory. Participants will work directly on the palette by mixing tonal relationships that correlate to what is observed in nature. The basic principles of building a painting, such as supports and grounds, viscosities, and painting “fat over lean” to create the skin of the painting, will be discussed. This workshop is designed for experienced beginners and intermediate painters, and participants will complete two to three canvases of exercises and at least one still life painting.
