Easy Peasy Palettes: Quick Color Tips to Transform Your Work
Color is absolutely essential to making a work of art unique. Color can affect the concept, mood and narrative of a piece. It can draw the viewer’s eye in a certain direction or make certain elements pop! And if the color feels off, hurts the eye – or doesn’t achieve your conceptual goal – it can make your work flop.
This class is jam-packed with easy, quick and actionable techniques for leveling up your colour palettes in the digital space. We’ll go over the basics of basic color palettes, and then I’ll dive into FIVE mini tutorials to spark your creativity and boost your color palette-picking abilities. I’ll also cover tips on how to distribute color into your work – the way color is used is so important to the subject matter.
These tips can be applied to physical work as well as digital work, but I will be using Adobe Photoshop to teach you here. Feel free to follow along in any program, like Procreate or Illustrator. Most of the techniques are concept-based and can be used anywhere at anytime.
This class is for you if you’re a beginner who’s never played with digital color much, OR if you’re a seasoned professional who’s feeling stuck. You also may be interested in this class if you just want to try something new.
