Creation Class: Beginner Oils: Saturation of Color

Class Instructor: Patricia Sweet

Class Title: Beginner Oils: Saturation of Color

Class Description: Saturation defines the brilliance and intensity of a color.  As things move closer to us, our eyes begin to see more color in the objects.  The Blue Ridge Mountain range is a perfect example of this.  Students will learn how to see changes in saturated colors and mix them in “strings” on the palette. A color string is a group of premixed piles of paints with different tonal values.

We will also review value relationships, mixing and application of oil paints, brush stroke techniques, and materials, and I will answer questions. Students will leave with a complete or almost complete 8×10 oil painting of the Blue Ridge Mountains and more confidence in painting with oils
