This four-day intensive will expand on Part 1 of the Munsell Color course. Using Munsell, students will learn how to approach the lights, halftones and shadows on simple forms leading to more and more complex objects. By the end of the class, students will understand the relationship between value and chroma and observe hue shifts when high chroma is a factor. In addition, students will study the world of low chroma, a challenging place where generic color names give little indication on how to mix and paint.
This class is offered to students who have completed Part 1 of the Munsell Color Theory course or an equivalent with Graydon Parrish.
