I’ve been doing a lot of research and study on colour mixing and color theory. I want to give the students in my Landscape Oil Painting class a colour wheel that works with the pigments we are using and reflects current thinking on colour theory. Well, what a can of worms I have opened!
I was talking with a Gallery owner recently about different people’s experiences with painting classes and in particular, the teachers. Personally, I’ve had some doozies!
She told me of some artists she knew who had recently attended classes held by a well known and very accomplished artist. The knowledge to be gained from this senior artist was probably quite valuable, unfortunately his teaching style meant that the students had come away with a negative experience.
