8/20/21 DEMO: Six Colors for Painting with an Unlimited Palette with Alex Sharma

Six Colors for Painting with
an Unlimited Palette

LIVE DEMO with Alex Sharma 
WHEN: Friday, August 20, 2021
(10am to 11:30am EST)

Imagine painting with a wide variety of colors just by mixing six specially chosen colors. Painting with a limited palette of colors is one sure way to achieve unity and color harmony. The word “limited” makes us think we won’t have lots of colors, but with the three primary colors, we can mix all the colors.

Alex Sharma will demonstrate the mixing possibilities and the wide color variations achievable. Color mixing with the primaries is common for all media.

Paint along in any medium using the following colors:
Reds: Alizarin Crimson and Cadmium Red;
Blues: Ultramarine Blue and Phthalo Blue;
Yellows: Cadmium Yellow and lemon yellow(or another pale yellow).

Materials Included: No materials are provided by Art League of Hilton Head for this demonstration.
Requirements: All LIVE DEMOs with Alex Sharma are designed so that students can watch, or paint along with while they watch. If you choose to paint along, you're welcome to paint in whatever medium you choose, as almost all of the techniques can be applied across mediums.
