Oil Painting with Alex Tzavaras – Color temperature Pt 1

This is Part 1 of a series of videos, where Realist painter Alex Tzavaras talks about colour.

Colour is for many Artists, one of the most exciting aspects of visual Art. But it can also be one of the most confusing. Nature presents us with an almost infinite variety of colours and there are also so many different pigments, from which to choose when trying to mix all the colours that we see. So where to begin?

Fortunately, there are a few simple rules, we can use to help us make sense of this apparently complicated subject and colour need not be as confusing as it first appears.

In has video, Alex explains the principle of COLOUR TEMPERATURE, how it works and how it affects the way colours behave relative to each other. He also demonstrates a simple and straightforward exercise which will help you understand and use colour temperature when mixing colours.
