I’ve got a new Online Workshop coming on Sketchbook Skool – Make Color Work for You!

It’s time to get more confident with color. ?

In my newest workshop with Sketchbook Skool, get to know the fundamentals of color theory, craft a personal color wheel, & build your own style, no matter your medium.

Express yourself in color! Play with the fundamentals of color theory to create a personal palette, no matter your medium.

Using color is an essential building block for any artist, but it can be challenging to control and harmonize. In this workshop, you’ll learn the core concepts of color schemes and gain confidence in your color choices, resulting in art that’s cleaner, sharper and more uniquely you.

Essential for artists who work in mixed media, watercolor, or color of any kind, this workshop is a practical and tactical lesson in going deeper into the world of color theory and use. 

Topics Include: 

  • Fundamentals of color theory & schemes
  • Crafting a personal color wheel
  • Creating harmony with color
  • Building your color style

Basic Supplies:

  • Acrylic paints (yellow, blue, red)

The workshop is on August 8, 12-2pm EDT live and online . If you do not make it to the live session you will have access to the recording later. And you can sign up right HERE

Bring It On!

I was playing with some color values and just painting them in my art journal and then I started seeing a city scape and added Atlas in front of the Rockefeller Center in NYC.

I stamped with my Grove Street Positive and Negative ArtFoamies Set and added some marks and definition as well as windows with Derwent Art Bars and Neocolor II (both are water soluble wax sticks) and white China Marker.

I added the journaling with a Fude Pen and a white Signo Pen. I love how this page just developed with no real agenda in mind and how all of a sudden I started seeing things.

Those are the most fun art journal pages to do for me when I am totally just enjoying playing with paints and media.

Here are the supplies I used for this spread:
