This class will make it easy to know when to start an abstraction and when to stop working on it.
Our focus will be on color. When to use thin and thick, warm and cool, and dark and light. How to do color harmony. Kassem will share techniques used by the masters that will enhance your knowledge and use of colors. He will show slides in each class revealing techniques you can master.
Never have a muddy color again.
Learn how to push and pull colors in space. How not to have a muddy color and how to master color harmony. Also, the most important thing to know is when to stop working on a painting. If it looks good halfway, you do not have to finish it. Rather have a good stopping point.
One-on-One critique and feedback will be going on throughout the classes. All levels welcome.
