In this class we will explore the advantages provided by control over color relationships in terms of the deliberate manipulation of range and key. It is a misconception among many artists that accurate duplication of color notes is the ultimate goal of color theory. When it is allowed to be so, artistic license and creativity are compromised. Rather, by regarding color as something that can be steered and manipulated for impact and effect within a maintained color relationship, the scope of possibilities is broadened. One ought not be loyal to the notes themselves but to the relationship between them.

We will systematically examine color use with consideration given to hue, value, chroma, temperature, and brightness, all within the context of a given color relationship. Understanding color relationships allows an artist to push boundaries and explore limits. This enables the strategic control of range and key, which empowers choice and creative license to guide the final impact and effect of a piece of art.

We will begin with brightly colored blocks, then we will advance to colored spheres. Next we will explore the figure, starting with a “duochrome” exercise to bypass hesitation, and then moving into more observational color choices with greater liberty.
