Color Workshop February 11!

The use of color is critically important for the working artist, well designed color can make your work powerfully compelling and will reach your audience at an emotional level that moves them. That will be our topic of study for this year's Color Workshop on Saturday, February 11, 12-8pm. So whether you're a landscape painter, figurative or entertainment artist, if you're in the LA area I'd love to see you there.

To enroll contact the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art at
877 695 2232. Online at www.laafa.org.

Here's what we'll cover:
  • The fundamentals of color theory for painters (traditional and digital).
  • The emotional impact of color and lighting to create mood and environment.
  • Principles for organizing the complexities of color into pleasing harmonies.
  • Strategies for solving color problems quickly and effectively.
  • Color exploration exercises.
  • Painting from a costumed model in a theatrical, colored light environment.
