Making Sense of Color

Color Your World With Confidence

Module 1

Many artists find the study of color to be overwhelming and complicated, but it doesn't have to be. I invite you to join me on a colorful journey. We'll take it one step at a time, module by module. You can ask questions and I'll answer.
You can apply concepts in any medium you choose such as acrylic, watercolor, oil or pencil. The theory is the same.

The Color Wheel

It all begins with three colors.

Then there are twelve.

No, wait. Fifteen?

And that's just for starters.

Become color proficient.

Learn to mix target hues.

Understand color.

Classifications. Properties. Characteristics. Relationships.
Learn the truth
about tertiary hues.

Whether you are experienced or are relatively new to the world of color, the application of methods learned in this course will enhance
your color knowledge and color mixing proficiency.

Being familiar with color and mixing offers independence and freedom of choice. If you don't have a particular color or want to make changes to suit your personal tastes, you have the tools to succeed. If you aspire to create your own designs, color harmony will make your art more pleasing and desirable.

Through video lectures and hands-on application, you receive instruction on the properties of color, and the relationships between, hue, value, temperature, saturation, tints, shades and tones. You will apply concepts of hue, value, temperature and saturation. You will employ knowledge of color mixing and controlling various aspects of a hue.

The principles are applicable to all media. Use your preferred medium to complete the lessons. Demonstrations are presented using watercolors.

Your Creative Mentor

I've chosen to use the title of Creative Mentor rather than instructor because I want you to view me as a partner in your success.

As a professional author, designer and international instructor, my designs and decorative accessories have been published worldwide in books, magazines and tutorials as well as my feature column, with original recipes alongside artful applications. I've created this eCourse site to share the creative fun with you! Perhaps you will be inspired to try your hand at some of the artsy ideas that I toss your way.

With a passion for all things creative, I have traveled extensively to share my unique artistic style with enthusiastic co-creatives. Through the magic of Ecourses now you can play too! Jump in and get your hands dirty—it will be loads of fun!

This comprehensive course is suitable for all skill levels.
