Bookings will close on Wednesday 28 October.
How do you create colours that you see, in coloured pencil?
How can you mix five colours together and get sixty?
How do you choose colours or a scheme, or find that little splash of the colour, which will really set off your drawing or embroidery?
This day will help you see more colours, learn how to mix them with blending coloured pencils and create your own colour wheel with tints and shades. Learn the basic language of colour and some ways of choosing colour schemes, as well as considering your instinctive response to it. Collect things you can find around your home and outside: glazed pots, textiles, pebbles, leaves, fruit, and vegetables. We will then study them closely, learning to
see the subtlety of colours they present, and look at how to mix them in coloured pencil, watercolour pencils and other media. We will also consider what effect the background colours have and look at how colours relate.
