This is not your standard colour theory class. The aim of the course is to develop direct and practical ways of working with colour and thinking about colour and colour mixing.
Discover how to mix any colour you want by understanding the essential principles of paint pigments, value, temperature & chroma, while learning how to use the paint’s pigment bias to your advantage. This information is key to successful colour mixing and painting with more life and energy
At the end of the workshop you should be able to take away these experiences and apply them freely and with confidence in your own work.
What you will gain
- A fresh viewpoint on colour
- Ability to mix colour confidently
- A process to ensure you mix what you want
- Realize the colour you need isn’t always the same as the colour you see
- Learn to mix the colour you need the first time
- Understanding pigments value, temperature, chroma and bias
- How to shift colour in the direction you need
- What paints you want on your palette depending on your style
- And we will finish with a discussion on why matching colour does not matter

Michael is enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable. Classes were well planned and often supplemented with “hand outs” or information on great web sites to explore. His demonstration paintings were detailed yet simply presented and easy to understand. He gave a lot of individual help to everyone and was able to offer suggestions to improve your painting, many of which can be applied to all my painting projects.
Because of his solid technical skills and eye for detail he was able to give us good constructive feedback, help us with modifications, and provided the necessary tweaking of color, tonal value and composition. He made a point of ensuring that each of us received the individual attention we needed (which is hard to do in a group of 16!) He has the gift of being able to explain things in a clear and concise way which he does with a great sense of humor and relaxed style.
Michael’s extensive artist knowledge, never ending patience and infectious humour, made the whole experience a most enjoyable journey. Chicken scratches turned into magical creative strokes, just by using Michael’s awesome brush techniques. Knowledge of correct positioning of facial features, and how to mix and apply realistic skin tones, brought my portrait to life!
I learned more in an hour than I have in two years.
