Acrylic Workshop. Limted Palette from the Masters with Alicia Harvey. January 3, 2016

Acrylic Workshop: Choosing a Limited Palette from the Masters with Alicia Harvey
Sunday, January 3,2016
1-4:00,  $75

Are you dissatisfied with workshops that tell you what color palette to use? Are you searching for a palette which defines and supports you as an artist?

In this workshop, Alicia Harvey simplifies color palettes to three acrylic colors, plus Titanium White to act as a foundation for your own personal palette.

Alicia guides each artist to choose the foundation of a personalized palette by assisting him/her in either:

  • choosing from 4 limited palettes (3 colors plus Titanium White) based on 4 paintings by well-known Masters (Vermeer, Renoir, Matisse, Picasso)  - OR -
  • creating your own limited palette by bringing a photocopy of a painting that speaks to your colorful self.

After choosing and purchasing your colors in the store, Alicia will then guide you through specific exercises to help you understand your colors, including a final exercise to play with these colors in a fun and informative study.

$75 (plus the cost of 4 acrylic paints of your choice during the workshop)

Paper and brushes supplied.

Please call 425-643-1781 to register.

A message from the artist: 
My sister and I visited Paradise Lodge at Mt. Rainier. We are lifetime hikers and we headed up the trails that lace the area above the Paradise Lodge. I kept stopping to take photos of a striking cloud bank that first appeared at the base of the Tatoosh mountain range. I didn't think much of it until the rangers started calling to us to get off the mountain. We were very reluctant to do this but they were predicting that the cloud bank was bringing extreme wind, rain, thunder and lightning. Convinced, we headed down and a good thing we did. That night thunder and lightning and driving rain kept me awake most of the night. The paintings here are from my photos and my memory.
