Bold and Neutral Colours in Acrylic Painting

Julia Borodina

Artwaves 2021

About the Workshop
Join professional fine art painter Julia Borodina in this exciting new workshop for ArtWaves 2021.

Would you like to boost your confidence and break free from a tentative and bleak painting approach? Then this is the perfect workshop for you!

Wonderfully bold colours and use of neutrals will help you to break free from cliche colour choices and develop a personal pallet.

Participants will explore and mix complementary and split-complementary colours, learn how colours affect the temperature of a painting and practice how to paint with impact.

This is a hands-on course for beginners to intermediate painters.
