You will be immersing yourself in the wonderful world of color, using three different hues each of yellow, red and blue to mix primary/secondary scales with Golden Acrylic Paint.  The rich array of color mixtures will open up the range of options available for you the next time you lift the lid of your paint box!  These are excellent reference guides to use in your studio.  Caution:  color addiction possible!

Beyond the initial act of mixing colors, the color mixture grids you’ll create will be a very useful reference tool for when you are painting; for making comparisons or remembering the mixture “recipes”.


There are 27 primary/secondary scale grids using Titanate Yellow, Hansa Yellow Opaque, Diarylide Yellow, Cobalt Blue, Anthraquione Blue, Phthalocyainne Blue Green Shade, Pyrrole Red Light, Primary Magenta, Quinacridone Violet; these are the only colors needed for this exercise.  Paint for shared use is included in this class.
