Today I gave a workshop in my studio about colour for oil painting; it went well. There is just so much darn info about colour to get a handle on, that there are volumes and volumes written about it. It can be pretty confusing for people learning to paint. Today we tried to break it down a bit. Thoughts on choosing colour palettes, the colour of shadows, colour matching, mixing and application techniques. I did this demo of an Italian village street scene. I was inspired by the colours in the cast shadows, so thought it was a good example for the demo. We were tired by the end of the day, but got a thorough workout!
