Bringing Color Harmony into Your Paintings
Color can be lots of fun however it is a highly complex process with many elements to consider such as such as hue, value, saturation, temperature and simultaneous contract. Have you ever added a new into your own artwork only to find out that something else is suddenly out of whack? 

Let’s try a new approach! Packed with excellent tips and tons of information, Christy Olsen will show us how to work through the elements of color in the context of relationships rather than in isolation. She will also demonstrate her pastel techniques and cover all of the basics needed to create a successful pastel with a focus on color harmony.
