Gamblin Colour Mixing Demo with Mary Weisenberg

October 23, 2020


When: Oct 23, 2020 01:00pm PST

Learn to color mix like the pros at Gamblin! In this demo, Mary Weisenberg from Gamblin will demonstrate the basics of color mixing with the creation of a custom color wheel. This will incorporate the use of a split primary Modern Organic Palette. This method uses a warm and cool of each primary color and provides an incredible range of color-mixing potential.  The dual warm/cool primaries of this palette will mix higher chroma, resulting in more intense secondary and tertiary colors. This demo is perfect for individuals looking to see valuable colour mixing skills in action, learn about the elusive chromatic blacks, or build their oil painting knowledge!
