Recorded Online Class

Secrets of Successful Color Mixing: Understanding Your Watercolor Paint

Class Length: Classes are recorded and in my online school for you to watch at your convenience!


Sign up simply by joining my Online School:

In this one-week course I will go over everything you need to know about the paint you are using.

In this class we will cover:

  • How to make a color mixing chart
  • Staining verse lifting colors
  • Granulating colors
  • Transparent verse opaque and when to use each
  • What color pigment codes mean
  • How to match colors from brand to brand
  • Understanding watercolor pigments color bias
  • How to mix multiple colors without getting mud
  • Primary, secondary, tertiary, complimentary
  • How to mix vibrant blacks
  • How to chose colors for a painting
  • How to maximize the colors you have without buying more
  • And many more useful tips you should know about your watercolor paint!

How it Works:

We had THREE LIVE online classes through Zoom. The live online classes were recorded and posted in my Patreon Online School for you to watch at your convenience. All material I go over are posted for you to download and use at your convenience.

This course is perfect for all levels of watercolor artists that would like to know more about the colors they are using.

What you need to take this course: (A full detailed list will be given when you sign up for class.)

  1. Watercolor paper: I recommend Arches, Fabriano, or Kilimanjaro cold pressed 140lb or 300lb paper. You need artists grade paper, not student grade.
  2. Watercolor Brushes: I use Holbein Gold Round brushes, size 4, 8, and 12 should be good for this class. Make sure you have good artist grade watercolor round brushes that come to a nice point.
  3. Watercolor Paint: I use Holbein paint, but just make sure you have good artist quality watercolor paint. We are going to work with the colors that you already own so you do not have to purchase specific colors for this class.

BONUS: By signing up for this class you also get instant access to my 80+ watercolor tutorials in my online school! Each include a full watercolor video with downloadable reference photo, line drawing, color chart and materials list. AND YES, THIS IS STILL ALL FOR JUST $14!!
