The Joy of Color Workshop in Fargo ND

May 20, 2019 @ 9:00 am - May 23, 2019 @ 3:30 pm



The Joy of Color RED Workshop
With Instructor Ellen Jean Diederich TWSA, RRWS, WSA, WW
Workshop – May 20th-23rd, 2019 Monday-Thursday  9:00-3:30 for Any-Level painter

All colors are beautiful and have infinite possibilities.  In this workshop, I have chosen to focus on the primary color RED so we really get a better understanding about mixing color. We will work with Red’s neighbors-the analogous colors, the warm & cool side, its compliment green and understand how its local value affects your composition. If you love color and want to expand your knowledge of mixing color, this workshop will guide you to focus in and experiment with any color. I will share many of my favorite pigment combinations to make beautiful transparent and semi-opaque reds.  You can be any level painter to take this class and work at your own pace.  This course incorporates basic watercolor skill exercises.

Please bring your own photographs that include a red (cool or warm) subject matter you want to paint.

Tuesday: Color Wheel knowledge, understand Red’s relationship with other colors.
Wednesday: Color value power, mixing the paint on paper to create volumetric shapes
Thursday –Friday: Composition- plan, draw and create a Red dominant painting.
