Goethe Colour Triangle to Create Colour Harmonies | May 28th, 10-12pm
Using a simple formula created by Goethe, learn to work with colours that might not normally harmonize through mixing and creating tertiary colours. This is a great workshop in getting familiar with your preferred palette. It is great to keep a palette minimal. This exercise is helpful for portraiture, still-life, abstract or landscape. Tertiary colours are the support colours that help liven up the brighter purer hues.
