Watercolor Triads

Create Mood and Harmony with Limited Palettes

Online Workshop with Jane Bludell Saturday, March 11, from 3pm–5:15pm Pacific

Note: this workshop will take place Saturday, March 11, from 3pm–5:15pm Pacific time (10am–12:15pm on Sunday, March 12, Sydney time).

Color mixing has infinite possibilities but can also be overwhelming! Working with a small and well-selected triad helps simplify the painting process and can bring harmony to your piece. It can also set a particular mood depending on the qualities of your pigments.

Develop your confidence in choosing and using triads with artist and color-expert Jane Blundell. She’ll guide you through working with two different triads, a basic primary set and a set of earth pigments. You will have the opportunity to explore their mixes and complete a sketch study with each to see them in action.

Saturday, March 11, from 3pm–5:15pm Pacific

                Art Toolkit workshops are live events that take place on Zoom. During the workshop, you will have a chance to ask the instructor questions. After the workshop, we’ll provide you with a link to a recording to review on your own time (viewable for at least six months).

                We’ll be in touch a week before the workshop with instructions for connecting and additional information. Please remember to adjust for your time zone. Tickets are non-refundable, but we may be able to transfer your ticket to another student if there is a waitlist.
