Richard Schmid Color Charts - revisited
I wanted to share some blog posts from a previous July that may be of interest to you in case you missed them or may be a new blog follower since they were originally posted.
Back in July of 2011, I took on completing the color charts suggested in Richard Schmid's original Alla Prima book. I documented all this in my blog to share with others. I started on July 1 with an overview, the next day when through suggested materials to get started and then shared all month long as I completed each chart along with lessons learned along the way. I ended the month with a summary of lessons learned as well as a short video. Here's video the link (for those of you who start a book at the end)
The blogposts may be helpful if you decide to take this assignment on for yourself. But of course, the real learning comes from doing it, not reading about it. So it you are ready to take your understanding of color to a deeper level, I encourage you to take on this challenge for yourself. You can read the blogposts for some guidance to get you inspired, but get your brushes wet!
If I can be of assistance, please get in touch with a comment.
