Our palette is more than just a place to squeeze out our colors; it’s a reflection of how we think about color. Our palette strategy — what colors we choose, how we organize those colors, and how we develop our mixtures — has a direct effect on the outcome of the final painting. In this 2-day workshop, you’ll learn how smarter palette practices lead to more effective mixing and smarter color solutions. The practices are applicable to both indoor and outdoor work.
