Lesson 2 - How to Use Colour

In this lesson, I share some tips on how you can improve your colour usage in your paintings. Colour is one of my favourite areas of art, but is difficult to know how to use and control at first.  

With a few methods and practices, being able to utilise and work with colour will really enhance your artworks. 

What we go through:

  • Practices to get better at colour
  • Tools you can use to generate palettes 
  • Practices to be mindful of when using colour
