A Color Narrative

Color tells stories and shares emotion in ways words can’t. In our time together, I’ll help you discover the beauty of each color and the stories they are ready to help you share through your art. We’ll begin by learning how to build limited color palettes that travel well and push you to figure out how to create your own beautiful colors. Once we have built our palettes, we’ll learn to mix a plethora of colors with a series of simple questions and adjustments. Next, we’ll work on some exercises that will reveal the importance of composition in storytelling – painting different kinds of watercolor washes with an emphasis on layering techniques and mark-making. We’ll conclude our time together with a pretty give-it-a-spin illustration project that includes a fancy globe filled with color, imagination and a few of your favorite things tucked inside!

Techniques/skills/projects included are: creating and documenting limited color palettes |color confidence-building | watercolor layering studies | start small-finish big composition practice | mechanical pencil mark-making project | give-it-a-spin illustration project

LOVED IT!

So inspired by your colors and style-- needed help learning how to use all these beautiful colors instead of randomly selecting. This was my first workshop and I learned a lot!! I also liked how you are very REAL in your videos, leaving in your changes of mind and indecision sometimes. Helps to know you have these moments and power through them to get that finished piece. Thank you, Danielle.

Absorbing and beautiful and utterly educational

What a stunning course. I learnt so much in such a calm and magically immersive way. The course is full to the brim and Danielle's gentle learning guides you so far without you even realising it. Take the course, you will love it.

I love this course!!!!, but I have a question... where are ducks in a row? I can't see them in the video... just a background made with watercolors 🙁

It pulled things together!

I've done a couple of color theory classes, this one was different. Not so much "color wheel" all over again, but it helped me pull together that foundation to start to go deep on the colors I like to work with. I learned some elements of graphic design and some basic watercolor technique that had eluded me thus far, too! This was a fantastic workshop, loved the videos and the explanations. 10/10!
