Although I think learning and practicing 1-point and 2-point perspective drawing is pretty darn fun, a lot of you don’t. I get it, it’s kinda math-ish and hard, can be really repetitive and boring. So before I sneak a perspective drawing lesson into the mix, I thought we could spend some time working with advancing and receding colors to give our green goat some perspective of his own!

STUDY. PREPARE. PRACTICE. IMAGINE.

STUDY | Take a few minutes to really study the colors of the goat on your handout. Keep in mind the general idea that warm colors advance and cool colors recede.

  1. Using a traditional color wheel, what colors do you consider to be “warm” and “cool”?
  2. Try to identify the areas that are cool green and warm green. Where are they placed and how much?
  3.  Review your watercolor palette and take note of the number of each of the following colors (primaries and secondaries)
    • Red
    • Blue
    • Yellow
    • Green
    • Purple
    • Orange
  4. What color do you have the most versions of? The least?
  5. Take a look at your neutral colors like gray, brown, sienna, ochre, etc. Do you have a lot of them or do you stick to colorwheel colors?
  6. What are your least used/most boring colors?
  7. Last, what is your favorite color? Your least favorite?

PREPARE | CLICK HERE for course supply lists.

  • Gather the supplies you need including the handouts and enough pre-cut squares to play along!
  • If you want to use the same paint colors as I do throughout the series, you can find them on the course supply list, too!
  • I mentioned a few really inexpensive detail brush sets that I have added to the course supply list – they aren’t required but I wanted to share them just in case! I bought them specifically for my in-person classes in case someone wanted to try one so I can’t give you info on how they hold up in the long-term but they seem to be nice enough to work with while you are learning!

Whew! You are done! I hope you had fun and I will see you next time – we’ll be adding some mixed-media dimension, a bigger-than-usual drawing, and a cute little bird to A POD OF WALRUSES!

Take care,
Danielle
