Master Palettes: Exploring Color Mixing

with Scott Gellatly
Explore foundational color theory in oil painting as artist Scott Gellatly defines three art movement color palettes and their characteristics.

Capture the timeless elegance of classical masterpieces, the visual splendor of the impressionist era and the vibrant rhythm of modern artworks—all with your color palette. Let artist and oil paint developer Scott Gellatly walk you through the characteristics of value, hue and chroma as you paint three paintings using the color palettes that define the classical, impressionist and 20th-century art eras. By the end of the class, you’ll be able to match any color when mixing your oil paint and develop your own personalized color palette that supports your unique artistic vision.

"I studied painting/fine arts at the university level many years ago, but this class provided several "aha!" moments. I can't begin to tell you how much of an impact this class has made on my notions of color, and I am looking forward to utilizing my new learnings in upcoming projects. Thanks again for a great class."
