Based on the book Depicting the Colours in Textures, this mini course will take you through 20 exercises covering a wide range of textures. invaluable for the realist painter.

The mini course is available in two versions:  

  • For watercolours, gouache and thinly applied acrylics

The ‘mini’ courses provide a series of exercises based on the paintings in our Colour Notes series. The exercises are completed following detailed information in each book. Each finished exercise becomes a painting in its own right and builds into a full colour mixing reference. This is definitely NOT a ‘painting by numbers’ approach but a program designed to teach ‘colour mixing and use through practical exercises.

The mini course is presented in an attractive presentation binder with protective translucent sleeves and consists of: Exercise sheets printed on 140 lb acid/free watercolour paper or acid/free textured oil painting paper. A printed laminated practice mixing palette and full instructions.
