You will learn how to mix any colour, match colours, choose colour schemes that work together, create colours that glow and be able to mute colours using a range of techniques. All materials, workbooks and workshop notes are provided.

During this intensive two day workshop, you will complete a colour mixing and colour theory workbook that will take you through the fundamentals necessary to master colour. We will also create a resource folder of paint mixing recipes that you can use again and again.

Once you have this system in place you will be able to add to it constantly expanding and improving your colour mixing knowledge.

Linda’s early study was with photography, drawing and painting. Inspired by the beauty and uniqueness of the Australian landscape she decided to become a landscape artist and developed a distinctive style which uses vivid colour and detail. “I strive to capture the essence of our country from the rich redness of the Pilbara to the turquoise waters of our spectacular coastline.”

After living in Perth for 10 years and traveling extensively around Australia, Linda now calls Melbourne home where she has continues to paint, exhibit and teach. Linda is recognised as one of Australia's foremost watercolour artists and her work has been described as quirky, bold and innovative.

Great short course on color, Linda teaches how to apply theory to good practice and we even got to create our own color wheel! This course is for people who want a better understanding of color mixing and artists tips and tricks.
