You will learn to draw imagery from a reference and abstract it to suit your purpose, using bold and vibrant colours to create beautiful works of art. From Peter John Reid: “If you're content to paint with the muddy pool of slop mixed on your palette and continue to hide your efforts in the closet or paint over them again and again, this course is NOT for you. If you don't have a sense of humor and don't like to have fun while pursuing your passion, definitely don't sign up for this course.
Before you can mix a colour you have to be able to see it. This class will give you the practical ability to mix any colour your heart (and eye's) desire and make colour the strength of your painting. Great colour makes the painting; it isn't an accident. This course will show you not to just copy your reference, but to take it and make your colour extraordinary. You'll learn how to enhance your ideas and images through colour.”
