Having a working knowledge of how colors mix is fundamental to painting. This class was designed to help acrylic painting students learn to understand pigments…making painting more satisfying and successful.
We will create a split primary color wheel, and chart colors to learn mass tone and tinting strengths. Other skills we will practice are how to read the paint tubes, blending with gel and using a palette knife. This class is great for beginners, but is very useful for painters that have found color mixing frustrating. You will have a hand painted color wheel to proudly display in your own studio!

For this class Tracy is specific in using Golden Acrylic Paints. You can also take this class using water soluble oil paints, but still need to meet color requirements listed below.
For this class you can get by with just a waxed paper plate, which we will have for your use. If you do want to invest in a palette that will keep your acrylic paints from drying out, you can use a rectangular Tupperware type container with lid or can purchase a sealing palette for acrylics to keep paints from drying out. Tracy loves, recommends and keeps in stock at ARTspot the Artelier Airtight Peel-Off Palette. It saves your paints from one painting session to the next and the lid is super easy to get off and on.
Note on paint colors: If you are purchasing separately or using colors you already have, these colors are specific. Please no substitutions.
Brushes: Acrylic Bristol Brushes, one or two of these type brushes:
