VIDEO CLASS: COLOR WHEELS
*NEW VIDEO CLASS* NOTE: This class does not meet on Zoom. It is a series of 6 videos (2 hours total) on YouTube that you will get the links for when you register.
If you love color, but don’t have the time or energy to sign up for my 4 week course “Experimenting with Color” please check out my *NEW* Color Wheel Video! I’ve made step by step instructions to follow in 6 short video segments (from 10 – 25 minutes) on how to draw two different color wheels. The first option utilizes a drawing transfer method and the second option we draw one from scratch with a compass and ruler to draw the color wheel together. You can choose to do one or both!
For the first color wheel I will guide you in using 12 separate colors to color in each of the pieces of the color wheel. In the second process I show you how to mix all 12 colors just by using the 3 primary colors (red, yellow, and blue)
No skills or knowledge of color theory necessary to follow these videos.
Students are encouraged to use the the medium they love the most and have the most knowledge about and experience with. Some suggestions are: Watercolor, Color Pencil, *Inktense Pencils, Pastels (Neocolor2 which are Water-based, Oil pastels, Chalk pastels), or anything else you have some comfort in or wish to explore.
In the videos I use *Inktense Pencils and show the viewer how to use them dry (just like color pencils) and then how to turn them into ink using water and a brush. If you are using your own paint or supplies you can use a similar color and it will still work. (for example: you may choose ultramarine blue, cobalt blue, or another kind of blue and get a slightly different results with the colors in your wheel.)
These are the basic colors you will need for your color wheel: yellow, yellow orange, orange, red-orange, red, red-violet, violet, blue-violet, blue, blue-green, green, yellow-green, brown, grey, white
