Would you like better control over your colour palette?

One of solutions to colour complexity is working with a limited palette.

You will see how a large range of expression can be achieved with a small choice of colours to mix from.

It's not the size of your palette that counts, but how you use it.

By using the Zorn palette, you will learn how measure the amounts of colour to reach their desired target colour.

You will also discover that not all colours are created equal and how to adjust your mixes and feel more confident in your colour choices.

Upon completing the exercise, you will put into practice your new found knowledge to create a painting using a limited palette.

If time permits, more advanced students will be shown how to expand upon the Zorn palette and increase their choices of colour.
