This is a practical colour mixing workshop where you can explore looking at effective use of colour and learn how to mix an exciting range of greens, earth colours, greys and more. You will mainly uses acrylic paint and discover the way in which a limited palette can achieve a versatile and harmonious variety of colours.

You shall use some of the methods and aids from the Michael Wilcox colour course exploring the control that can be gained when using colour. By understanding what really does happen when colours are mixed, you will be able to master colour mixing in a very short time. This look at colour mixing is applicable to oils, acrylics, watercolour, gouache, pastels, coloured pencils, silk screen inks, textile inks and all arts and crafts which involve the use of colour. By unravelling the many ambiguities and myths inherent in the established way of working we will attempt to transform colour mixing from a haphazard affair into a thinking process where you can find out what really happens when colours are mixed.
