Watercolor Class - Color Mixing

Watercolor Class - Color Mixing


The Color Mixing watercolor lab is a four-hour workshop focusing on getting the most out of your palette. We’ll move from theory to practice through a series of demonstrations and hands-on activities.

Mixing watercolor paint is not always as straightforward as yellow+blue=green. This workshop will help you understand why some colors seem to obey the rules while others deviate, and how to adjust accordingly.

Learn how the classes of pigments affect paints and mixes
Understand basic color theory and terminology
Create clean, clear mixes and learn how to avoid muddy colors
Put your new knowledge to work with a color matching challenge
Mix directly on paper, in a tray, and through glazed layers

While color creation will still involve experimentation, you’ll leave the class with better color intuition to make the mixing process faster and more rewarding. You will also go home with many completed exercises and a lot of mixing practice under your belt.
