Colors that flow from one to the next are naturally beautiful together. One way to discover nature’s secrets of color flow is to select just one color to explore in its many variations of hue, value and saturation.
Bring a stack of paint chips in as many different tints, shades and tones of one color as you can find. You can choose to use your favorite color, or pick a color that you never use. We will use these swatches in a series of fun exercises designed to teach you the secrets of color flow.
After playing with the swatches, you will select five or six variations of your color to make a monochromatic Skinner blend that sings with power. Learn how to mix colors to match the swatches, how to test your color combinations, and the tricks of using a Skinner blend with the Maggio Watercolor technique.
Once you have a gorgeous Color Flow Skinner blend you will make a collection of thinly striped split rings to mix and match at home.
