Re: Johannes Student Discussion Week 11-April 9 class-Color Harmony

Still listening, to the webinar, as I type... This has been an absolutely riveting lesson Johannes, I have been painting for a few years, and haven't done too bad, but you put a colour wheel in front of me and my mind would go blank, you have made it so clear. I am itching to start on mine, but had better go to bed first, as it is past 11... Thank Johannes.

Brilliant class. So many concepts clearly and simply stated. I am one of the "lurkers," and I listen very attentively. Today's lessons on color harmony was so worth the time! Thank you.

Re: Johannes Student Discussion Week 11-April 9 class-Color Harmony

While I am not a newbie to Wet Canvas articles or to P&W Publications, this is the first Webinar class for me. I recently joined WC and this is my first post. I have been painting for many years and have learned more from Johannes's classes than all the others I have taken rolled into one. Johannes, I want to thank you for all the little "gems" that no one ever shared with me in the past. My enthusiam had become nonexistent but now I am motivated and excited when I pick up my paint brush.

Re: Johannes Student Discussion Week 11-April 9 class-Color Harmony

Yes I have to agree with the others...while all of your classes are excellent todays was really WOW...maybe it's because things are starting to come together but totally wowed by the lesson today, thank you so much. I'm downloading the two classes that I missed, and I just want to say that I hope everyone is buying the books and downloading the lessons, this kind of training would cost thousands of dollars if we were to attend workshops. I have ordered all but two of the books and I'm going to do that now...so grateful to F&W for making this possible, to Johannes for sharing so freely with us, what a gift you are...to Kenneth for putting up with us and answering our questions and to Judy...thank you all...can't say it enough....

If you have yellow ochre , can you modify it to become a yellow ochre pale?

You can add cadmiun lemon or other primary yellows but I would still buy the yellow ochre pale. It is just great for landscape painting. I can't live with out. the advantage of this pigment is it doesn't get chalky.

Re: Johannes Student Discussion Week 11-April 9 class-Color Harmony

Johannes, I'm deeply grateful for your review of my painting in today's class, I'm humbled by your positive comments which are very encouraging. I was inspired by one of the paintings on Ted Kautzky's book, I have all his books which we studied in architectural school to learn architectural renderings in pencil, and watercolor.
And, thank you for such brilliant class today on color harmony, I learned today in three hours what I didn't in lots of books and workshops for years.

He is known for his dry brush technique. He handles foliage nicely too. I am not that crazy about his dark values and some color schemes he uses.
Here are some pages of that book.

Re: Johannes Student Discussion Week 11-April 9 class-Color Harmony

Johannes,

Thank you once again for a very informative class and your critique of the winter trees I had done. It's really helpful when you point out how to improve. Had no idea the cheaper paints would cause mud when mixing although I have experienced it : (

I've been using the "other" cheaper brands and because of the information you gave I wanted to get a better brand of acrylics. Went out to the on-line stores that sell the W&N and after I checked 3 places was surprised they don't have Viridian or Indian Red in the W&N Acrylics. They have it in oil only which I have mostly avoided because of my Asthma.

I did consider using the Oil that cleans up with water but wasn't sure if the quality of the paint is good - any thoughts on that?

Do you happen to purchase your Winsor & Newton acrylics from one of the on-line art stores that you could recommend?

Any assistance you could give would be greatly appreciated.

Barbara

Re: News Alert! Recorded Webclasses are now available

I thought the videos probably would have the cuts, someone losing video, etc but they edited them pro style. I missed the first two weekends before I knew about the class. I've told several about the class but they think they are too old to be learning more. I don't think you are ever to old to learn. I thought I had good paintings but looking at yours made me want to make mine better. Last week the one I painted was the worse ever I painted but I had to work on my computer all week and was frustrated and just was not thinking as I knew the background should be lighter etc. It was like a different person was painting. Have you ever had days like that? Some one once told me I had many personalities and looking at this last painting I believe it. About the Harmony class, I think you did a real good job at explaining it. I thought you took a color and spread it here and there in your painting to harmonize. I think the putting yellow in every color on a sunshine day is a simple way to do it. Thanks again Johannes

Honestly I would prefer water soluble oils over acrylics. The pigments themselves in oils and acrylics are exactly the same so if health is your concern you gain nothing using acrylics over oils. For example burnt sienna pigment is exactly the same in oils, watercolor, acrylics, and pastels. The only difference bewteen them is the binder that holds the powder together. The binder for oils is usually linseed oil which is no more or less toxic than cooking oil. It comes from totally natural sources. The only thing left then would be the petroleum based solvents such as turpentine and mineral spirits which is what some people are concerned about breathing. When you use water soluble oils you will eliminate the solvents so you are now in the same boat as with acrylics but without the blending advantages. The three leading online stores that have discount prices are, rexart, cheap joe's or dickblick. I would cross check prices in each. I would order the winsor & newton water solubles that are not student quality.
