June 12, 2017

Colour Exercises


During the second week of this course the focus is on colour and composition. 

 

Kicking off Module 2, we get to indulge in creating colours from the basic Principal range of eight Fluid colours with the addition of Azo yellow. This set contains all the colours you will need to create a very wide spectrum of colours.  The video tutorial and images below give an insight as to how the basic colours work. 

 

Enjoy exploring colours, extend your colour vocabulary. Be a colour alchemist. mix them up and create some magic.

Module 2's other components include: 

  • Composition with collage using coloured tissue paper and composing with simple shapes.

  • Printable sheets with components to be used to explore a variety of still life compositions.
