3/11/2022 ONLINE DEMO: "Six Primary Colors for Unlimited Possibilities" with Alex Sharma

A LIVE ONLINE DEMO, with Alex Sharma 
WHEN: Friday (10 to 11:30am EST)
March 11, 2022

Imagine painting with a wide variety of colors by mixing only 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—or their equivalent: 

2 Reds: Alizarin Crimson (or violet-leaning red) and Cadmium Red (or orange-leaning red); 

2 Blues: Ultramarine Blue (or violet-leaning blue) and Phthalo Blue (or turquoise-leaning blue);

2 Yellows: Cadmium Yellow (warm, orange-leaning yellow) and lemon yellow (or another pale greenish-leaning yellow).  

Ticket purchases to Art League of Hilton Head events are final. Credits or Refunds will not be given for missed or classes/workshops.
