Colour Theory Final

My class on colour theory finished with a three week project that evolved around a single landscape that we designed and painted in a prescribed list of twelve different colour schemes. As usual, I made this assignment more difficult for myself when I chose a fairly complicated image.

If I could suggest one change to ACAD’s first year studies curriculum, it would be that this class be made mandatory for the BFA students, as well as BDes. I learned an awful lot about colour mixing and interactions, and generally gained a stronger grasp of painting with acrylics, simply by having done so much of it.
