The idea behind this course is to discover the beauty of mixing color and all the magic it holds.
With a limited palette of 4 colors, the 3 primaries and a neutral, together we create over 300 different color variations.
As an artist this will be life changing. It opens up many more possibilities for your art that you ever thought possible. And all of it is done with just 4 colors which is amazing.
Cultivate - to refine, improve, encourage further
