Oil Painting Color Studies: A Perceptual Understanding of Color with David Baird

Learn how color studies and oil sketches are valuable tools for working out compositions and quickly capturing motifs.

The vitality and intuitive nature of a quick paint study can be appreciated today as a work of art itself.​ David will demo and discuss quick-painting techniques, focusing on analyzing and mixing harmonious colors. Students will learn about color theory, value structure, and gain an understanding of light and form, followed by exercises where you put these concepts into practice. David will give individual one-on-one critiques while you work.
