This 4-week workshop introduces a series of limited and full palettes and includes several exercises designed to give the oil painter mastery over color mixing. Color concepts such as tone, temperature, saturation, and atmosphere will be explored in each palette.

Students are encouraged to spend each week painting independently with the “palette of the week” in their chosen genre. There will be an option for students to enroll for individual critiques to complement the lectures.
