Level: suitable for beginners to curious intermediates 

Hands on opportunities:  Join Monica Burrow for one day of instruction in colour mixing, or take the colour mixing day as a third Saturday after taking the Acrylic Lanscape workshop. 

Do you love Colour" Curious about colour?  Wondering why you can't get a particular colour?  Greens look too harsh?  Do you need to buy purple, orange, or green?  How to mix colours that don't look like they come right out of the tube?  How neighbouring colours can make each other look even better.  How to get away from the colours in your photo.  Colour dominance, colour harmony.  We will cover as much as we can. 

Goal: Explore the process, whie making your own marks.  The instructor will meet you where you are in your progress.

Joffre Jewels



1. Two finished, easy to carry pieces of work you’ve done already that show me where you are currently at in your work  

2. Three well lit landscape reference photos of differing scenes (preferably well composed according to the rule of thirds), and taken on a sunny day. Prefer no buildings, boats, animals or other bits that will distract from the landscape theme.

3.  Try for an interesting but uncomplicated foreground, with good mid-ground and distance information. (if in doubt email me the photos in advance, otherwise trust your instincts – if rule of thirds is unfamiliar, give it a google.)

ü  a good sized palette. (I use a white enamelled metal butcher’s tray available at Sublime Art Materials for about 30$) * BUT if you already have a good sized palette with a good easy to clean mixing surface don’t go out and buy another one.*** I don’t gravitate to palettes with lots of little wells and no space to mix paint. Eg: My butchers tray is 12” by 15”
