The expert guide to colour mixing!

Here is a sneak peak of all the fun Modules in this course!

 Module 1

Colour Wheel

In this first module we talk about the importance of the colour wheel, learn about single and multi pigmented paint and what the label on your paints tell you. We will paint a colour wheel and mix some beautiful neutrals!

 Module 2

Colour Value and Bridges

Did you know value is more important than colour in a painting? In Module 2 we discuss values and colour bridges and make beautiful colour charts that can serve as a reference!

 Module 3

Colour Opacity

Are your paints opaque or transparent? My absolute favourite paints are transparent because when used for glazing they give a beautiful glow to your painting! But Opaque colours are important too. In this Module you will learn the difference and how to see if your paint is Opaque or Transparent.

 Module 4

Colour Temperature

Is your colour warm or cool? It is all relative! Mixing warm and cool colours give a completely different result, we will mix our own greens and you will see the difference!

 Module 5

Colour Mixing and Matching

In this last Module everything comes together. We will mix harmonious and limited palettes that will help you pick your colours with confidence for future paintings.

After this class you know:

  • Everything about Primary, Secondary, Tertiary Colours
  • How to read and use a Colour Wheel
  • How to mix a value chart from light to dark
  • How to create colour bridges
  • How to read a paint label
  • The difference between single and multiple pigment paints

 If you don't know me yet, I am Marina, your painting guide!

I am passionate about painting representational art in cold wax and oils. While teaching my passion, I noticed that many of my students became very frustrated when mixing colours that turned into mud. That gave me the idea to make this 5 day colour bootcamp, a class where we go back to the basics of colour mixing. This is not a cold wax class but can be done in any medium.

 I will help you overcome the struggle of colour mixing and show you how to mix your colours with confidence!


No need to buy new oil paints, use whatever colours and tools you have and get to know them well! Are they transparent or opaque, warm or cool?
