VIDEO – Color Journal Demo

VIDEO – Color Journal Demo

Slideshows and videos are in many of our lessons, but we also publish each one separately so you can find them without wandering through old posts aimlessly. Just enter text into the “search the site” field over to the right, for something you remember. It can be something that was in the photos or written in the text.


Here’s our demo for how to use and create our special color journals. These are not just a series of formulas since that would quickly become the only colors a student would use. Instead, the journal is designed to mimic the way artists actually mix colors, changing the color several times with the addition of new pigments to take the color to a new direction. The resulting colors are all useful and show artists how other pigments AFFECT colors.

All of our color journals can be printed out on card stock for each student to use and save.
