A New Colour Theory – Parts 1 & 2 (Abramo Papp)

Paints: experienced artists - bring whatever paints you currently have. Absolute beginners without any paints can use in-class acrylic paints before deciding which colours to buy. Do not waste money on buying cheaper acrylic paints just for these classes. Brushes: flat taklon brushes are best for small studies and metal palette knives, trowel shaped 2-3 cm long, for mixing paint. Other materials include flat white mixing palette (A3 tear-off palettes are best in class); container for water or solvent for rinsing brushes; paint rags. Oil and Acrylic artists need an A4 ‘Canson’ canvas paper pad for colour studies. Watercolour artists need an A4 watercolour pad for colour studies. These pads will also be useful as visual diaries in Parts 1 and 2 of the course. In Part 2 of the course, bring along the CYM colour wheel and charts, completed colour wheel and studies completed in Part 1.
