Susan Abbott – Crash Course in Color Theory (Online Class Recording)

Date recorded: Friday, May 19, 2023
Medium: All

Are you confused by books about color theory and can’t figure out how to apply what you read to your own painting? Have you given up on the whole topic because it’s overwhelming? Help is on the way. 

We’ll cover why the color wheel is the basis of color composition, the vital importance of complements, using analogous color to harmonize, why temperature and color value are such important tools, and many more topics that will be explained through slide shows and demos.  This intensive class will demystify the why’s, what’s, and how’s of color and show you how to immediately apply theory to your own painting.

Susan Abbott shows her oils and watercolors in galleries around the country. Her paintings have been featured in museum exhibits, on the Oprah Winfrey Show, in magazines such as “Watercolor Magazine” and  “American Artist”, and she writes a column on creativity for “Artists Magazine”. Susan is a popular teacher of art workshops in the U.S. and abroad. You can see her painting at and on Instagram at “susanabbott_art”.
