Mixing Neutrals—using water-mixable oils

 

Sunday, Feb 24, 2019

1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

 

Crossroads Art Center, Richmond, VA


ALL ART MATERIALS PROVIDED!    $80/$75

 

$80/ $75 if you register by Feb 21 

 

—Just come with a palette knife!


You may think of neutrals as being grey, beiges, and dull, but this class will open you up to the beauty and subtly of nuance! Neutrals have a lot of color. They are not just grey; anytime you add a complement to a color, you are neutralizing it. 

We will mix combinations of neutrals on a grid, and you may have time to paint a small painting (bring a small canvas if you wish to do so). 

 

Participants walk away with a sheet of all the colors they have mixed, labeled so that later you can reproduce the colors! 

You may bring snacks/drinks. These and coffee are available at Crossroads starting at noon.
