A New Approach to Color by Christy Olsen
Painting can be lots of fun however working with color is a highly complex process with many elements to consider. Have you even introduced a new a color in your own artwork only to find out that something else is suddenly out of whack? Let's try a new approach, choosing colors in the context of relationships rather than in isolation. Packed with excellent tips and lots of information, Christy Olsen will demonstrate her painting techniques and cover all of the basics needed to create a successful painting using the pastel medium.
