Why does Jason think  this course would be of value to you as a painter ?
Many painters I meet have problems with colour mixing. They are often unaware of the reasons why they muddy their colours and consequently fail to achieve the striking colours they crave.
Jason has spent nearly thirty years devising ways to explain colour theory in simple language, explored in fun painting exercises that slowly build your knowledge until you can explain to others how and why you have achieved the resulting colours or effects. Take the strain out of learning about colour and within five weeks you will have revolutionised your painting methods.

What will you do on the course ?

Jason teaches by providing weekly demonstrations of exercises to be undertaken. He also provides hand outs and talks that help you better understand the practical applications of colour theory.
By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Know your colours by name to help you visualise colours
  • Know your primary and secondary colours
  • Mix clean and bright colours
  • Create a multitude of delightful greys
  • Create a colour bias wheel as a useful reference tool for thinking through colour mixes
  • Be able to look at a coloured object and mix a closely matching colour
  • Be able to explain and use colour bias theory in your mixing
  • Mix a multitude of useful greens
  • Split your colours into warm and cold
  • Create distance through warm and cold colour use

You can choose to undertake this course using either acrylics or watercolour.
Please bring your painting kit to the first session including: water pots, palette, brushes, paper, drawing board, kitchen roll and masking tape.
