The concept of cool color vs. warm color in art is a notorious challenge. It is referred to as “temperature of color”. We’ve been getting requests from our students to explain temperature as it relates to painting. By popular demand, we are offering this 6-week course that will address this.
In this course, you will learn a technique that will help you understand why and when to use cold and warm colors. It is important for expressing the difference between various materials, and it creates the impressive appearance of realism. For example, a translucent flower petal, or a curtain illuminated from behind, or a dog’s ear that lets the light through, or red wine in a glass when you look at it in front of a window. Another instance: the difference between the color of the reflected light, the color of the diffused light, and the color of the direct light.
It is hard to visualize it from those descriptions because this concept can’t be grasped or explained verbally; it is one of those painting nuances that you can only learn through experience, and that is what this course will do.
This AMAZING technique will help you understand it once and for all. You will acquire a new breakthrough shortcut to painting, that will most likely be new even for the contemporary artist. But there is even more; this course is loaded with surprises.
If you want to feel enriched as an artist and:
