I thought this was very well put together and presented. Colour concept can be hard to grasp, and the more you experiment, thereby gaining experience, can help you to absorb the process so that it becomes more and more a part of your work. As you point out, use of the complementary colour to alter the intensity gives a harmony. And the small amount of pure, intense colour gives the all important zing. There is a lot of good information and advice in this short video!

I’m enjoying your new website and the videos you posted. The graphics are great, and the music is nice without being overpowering. Can’t wait to take your online classes/workshops!


Thanks for explaining the concept. Easy to understand when u actually show how it’s done. One question – did u just put the greyed down color or was that planned. It almost looked splattered! Great video!
