A Little Bit About Color # 1

Okay Here We Go.

Remember though, I’m not a professional and trying to think, talk, and do all at the same time at my age is not the easiest thing to do.

For this video I wanted to start at the beginning with the color wheel so most of this content will be old news to many of you. But it will lay the foundation for the rest of the lessons.

Here’s the good part……….I’ll be doing my best to answer questions! So if you have a question about this week’s lesson you can post it in a comment and I’ll do the best I can to answer it.

I strongly encourage you to go ahead and make the color wheel along with me. It’s the best way to learn.

For the next lesson I’ll begin painting the project.

When it’s complete I’ll make the pattern, instructions, and photos available in a pattern packet so you can paint the entire project.

I hope you have some fun and pick up a few tips along the way.

    Hi Ronnie, this is a great lesson, but after you paint the red, it stops playing. Hopefully, I can figure out how to see the whole lesson.

    I really want to paint the palette project. That looks so fun.

    Best demonstration on how to mix colors for a color wheel and best explanation of how these colors evolve. Great job, Ronnie. I finally “got it”.

    Can’t wait to view the video later..I did find it very funny that you said you’re not a professional! Your painting is exquisite!

    You did a fabulous job. I was mesmerized watching you make and mix the paint for the color wheel. Is it okay if I forward your email with the link to my chapters so they can all see this very informative video? I also think it would be great to share with SDP for their educational blog.

    • Ronnie says:

      Karen, Yes, you are welcome to share the email and the link with your chapter for the color video. I hope it will encourage your members to subscribe to the blog!
      As for the SDP………….I’m sure they have many more qualified teachers to add something to the “official” blog or website!
      Thanks for your comment! I’m glad you enjoyed the video.
