COLOUR MIXING INSPIRES CREATIVITY
LEARN COLOUR MIXING TO PAINT YOUR GREATEST ART
Colour Mixing Tutorials teach you a skill that is absolutely crucial for artists to learn and feel truly confident about. The artistry of colour mixing and colour palettes in painting is not a mere trifling matter, but rather a fundamental cornerstone upon which your painting confidence stands. There is just too much poor information and misinformation ‘out there’ to rely on using that to learn. That is why I created this course. Colour Mixing confidence can light up your path towards creating exciting and new colour palettes and vivid visual expressions which will invigorate your work and enthusiasm for painting.
If we want to become an artist we accept that we need to learn to draw but isn’t colour something we all know about from when we are infants? Why do we need to learn about it? The simple answer to this is that we learn an overly simplified version of colours in kindergarten that is somehow never truly corrected as we get older. This is why, for example, most adults will tell you that red and blue make purple. Heads up, they don’t. They make a brown. This misinformation is why colour mixing fails for so many people and they end up using a very limited version of the colours that are possible.
The purpose of this online Colour Mixing Course is to highlight the importance of learning about Colour Mixing and Colour in Art to help you to make your painting so much more interesting than you ever could have imagined and to learn it from a trusted source. If we had a car that needed a repair would we take it to a free mechanic, a cheap mechanic or a trusted mechanic? I take my car to the mechanic who lives in my road in my village. This is not because he is local but because he lives or dies by his reputation so I know he does his best job. At Bradness Gallery, it is the same. We are a small thriving business. We do not have an advertising budget. We live by our reputation and personal recommendations.

I love the work of Matisse. His family produced textiles for generations and this is where is love of colour and pattern came from. The rich reds and indigo blue.

The colours in this painting have been inspired by the wonderful colours of Provence; rich yellows, ochres and bright sky blue.
COLOUR MIXING TESTIMONIALS
YOUR FABULOUS COURSE! Dear Emma,
I just wanted to let you know I am loving your course! I’m now up to the colour mixing section, and today I’ve been following along with your videos and making blues. Wow! I never knew how many gorgeous shades I could create. Thank you so much! It’s so fascinating and enjoyable watching the colours change by adding a little bit of other colours. With much appreciation, and painting happiness, Dvora. Dr Dvora Liberman
GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY AND EXTREMELY USEFUL in improving painting technique
This has been such a useful course and I have learned so much not just about mixing but also about using my paints more effectively. Emma is a great teacher and the course provides a huge amount of resources, videos and guidance. Just like the last course I did with Emma, it’s a game changer for my painting. I highly recommend it. Samantha Rider
I AM HUGELY IMPRESSED. You have evidently invested so much time and effort in it (goodness knows how long it took you to compile) and it is, as you promised, accessible, easy for complete beginners to follow, fascinating – and amusing, in a good way. I laughed when I reached the point at which you said art shouldn’t be stressful, as it really resonated with my tendency to treat everything as a task.
What you also convey, very vividly, is your own enthusiasm and reasons for creating the course – and your student sketchbooks are beautiful; to me they are works of art in themselves. Caoline Stead

WHY I CREATED THIS COLOUR COURSE - FOR YOU TO LEARN AND UNDERSTAND COLOUR MIXING
I CREATED THIS COURSE TO HELP YOU LEARN AND UNDERSTAND COLOUR AND COLOUR MIXING IN YOUR ART
MY NAME IS EMMA BURNETT AND I WORK FULL TIME AS AN ARTIST AND ART TEACHER, HERE AT BRADNESS GALLERY in Sussex, England. I have taught Colour Mixing and Theory here for many years on our 5 star rated courses. My own knowledge has been acquired over decades of study, practise and most importantly, teaching. www.bradnessgallery.com
I HAVE CREATED THIS COURSE TO BRING TOGETHER ALL ASPECTS OF COLOUR IN ONE EASY RESOURCE HUB. Understanding paint colours, how to mix any and every colour so that you can confidently replicate any colour you see, understanding why you use each colour you need rather than learning by rote, understanding how colour helps artists to create depth and distance, shape and form, drama, softness and focal points. Finally, to look at great art and great artists, start to understand why these amazing artists use the colours they do and feel inspired to explore new ideas.
MY AIM IS TO EXPLAIN COLOUR SO THAT WE SEE IT DIFFERENTLY It becomes our friend rather than a confusion ready to trip us up. This way, we can expand our use of colour and learn why we like the colour palettes we are drawn to.
ON THE COURSE YOU CREATE YOUR OWN REFERENCE SKETCHBOOK AS YOU PAINT ALONG TO THE REAL TIME COLOUR MIXING VIDEOS. Sketchbooks are just the best place to try new things. Like a secret teenage diary they are ours and ours alone. A safe place to experiment and try things out.
ART IS A GLORIOUS ADVENTURE OF EXPLORATION AND DISCOVERY especially when you have learned the skills you need. Once you know the rules, they are there to be broken in what is a wonderful freedom for adults.
