Color Design Workshop on Nov 8, Ten week Head Drawing Course Begins Oct 20


If you're in the LA area and want to refine your color and drawing skills, you're welcome to join me for a couple of upcoming events.

On Saturday November 8th I'll be giving an all day workshop on color theory for subjects of all kinds including landscape, figurative and entertainment design. Here's what we'll cover:
  • The fundamentals of color theory for painters and digital artists.
  • The emotional impact of various color combinations to create mood and environment.

  • Principles for organizing the complexities of color into pleasing harmonies.

  • Color exploration exercises.

  • Painting from a costumed model.
Also coming soon is my 10 week Head Drawing Course. It will be held each Monday night from 7 to 10 pm starting October 20th.
To enroll contact the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art at 877 LA-Atelier. Their site is

Hope to see you soon.


  1. Those are nice Nathan. Love the colour thumbnails! Great stuff my friend, wish I could attend the workshop.

  2. That looks like a great class - I'd love to attend since I've never gotten too much instruction on color use. I've just sort of tried to figure it out. However - I'm a little worried because I've never really used physical media for color. I've done a lot of charcoal, but mostly colored digitally.

  3. I wish I could get back into figure drawing, back to basics, just don't have the time. Would love to attend the class, I like the raw sketchy quality to your figures. Have been to your blog many times, love the animation backgrounds too - will keep coming back

  4. Great to see these charcoals. The classes you teach must be rewarding and a great time as well.

  5. Man I'd like to attend that 1 day workshop. LA is so lucky to get all the good stuff. If you record the workshop onto a tape or DVD and sell it, I'd buy it. :)

  6. Dear Nathan,

    I love your art and Methodism. Wanted to know if you plan somewhere in the future to make some Online Courses.
    Animators all around the world use
    it has the advantage of not being limited at one only area to teach and it is secure information (no pirates copying of the info's)

    I wish to participate at your workshop but it is so far away !

    Thx for your attention

  7. Had to stop... really cool paintings... the colours ... the movement... really cool

  8. I'll be taking the color workshop. Can't wait!

  9. I decided to make the trip down and am looking forward to your workshop!

  10. I just wanted to mention that your portrait and color workshop images are in my digital library's highest place of honor--very nice! In particular it's the stroke on the lower-left portrait that defines the hair/back of the head that gives me goosebumps every time I look at it. Again, thanks so much for sharing your work so liberally. I hope to one day take a workshop! Finish school at BYU right now...
