How to Wield Color like a Pro

How to Wield Color like a Pro

June 12, 2020

Are you curious about incorporating more color into your practice? 

I get a lot of questions from fellow painters just starting out, asking me about color.

How do I build my palette? What are my favorite colors? How do I know which colors go together? How do I mix colors?

Do any of these resonate with you?

It all boils down to understanding color theory. Every artist starts with the basics, and it's a good idea to revisit them every so often even if you are an experienced painter.

Let's start with the principles of color:

  • Value
  • Hue
  • Saturation
  • Contrast 
  • Harmony

Does this sound like gibberish to you?

Download my Guide to Color to learn how these principles are applied to your artwork.

There are so many colors to choose from, it's tempting to want to use them all!. While there are no rules saying you can't, there are tricks to using color tactfully. My color tips are designed to give you a framework to set you on the path to creating more harmonious art.

When you create more art, the world is filled with more beauty. Go forth and spread joy!
