Green: But Is It? (5-weeks/Online)
Instructor: Erin Raedeke
April 14 - May 12
Wednesdays, 2-5 pm EST
As spring approaches green is on our minds! There are more variations of greens in the physical world than there are of any other color, and those greens shift dramatically with the change in light. But often what we think of green, especially in the landscape, actually is closer to another hue family. Context and juxtaposition can make a color read as green that might read otherwise in a different context. Understanding the range of hue bias, temperature, intensity, and the impact of adjacent colors makes mixing and controlling greens tricky, yet very exciting. Green can take over a painting if it is not controlled or properly mixed, and this class will show both the range of green possible from mixtures of blues and yellows tempered with other colors and how they read in relation to other colors. Mixing and paint application demos by Erin will be done with oil paint in the studio, from plants and other objects, but apply completely to work in the landscape. Students can work during class from plants, objects, views, and in between classes from Plein air sessions.
