Three Day workshop October 3-5, 2017 from 10:30 AM until 4:30 PM daily with an hour break for lunch. We begin with a simplified explanation of basic colour theory and how it can be helpful to determine the result of applying layers of colour during the printmaking process. Next, we determine colour tone (value) on our palettes and observe how the tone and hue changes when pigments are mixed or layered. From that strong foundation of understanding how pigments interact, we will mix beautiful neutrals using a limited palette of six pigments to further understand and predict the result of layered interactions. Finally, we explore how choosing colour by tone and temperature can strengthen both design and composition.
