Margaret Best: Seeing Red… To your Advantage
June 11-13, 2010

Margaret Best is returning to the LA area for another in her popular series of workshops on specific colors. “Seeing Red …. To your Advantage” will help you develop a deeper of understanding of the red paints available on the market and how to bring them under control to work for you. You will also learn how to match some of the trickier red hues found in nature and how achieve the best possible lasting brilliance.

Many artists find red both challenging in terms of the color application and also in how to balance its presence with regards to overall composition. So part of the class will focus on effective composition and the impact a color such as red can have on your painting.

Margaret has 22 years of experience of working with pigments in addition to her own active involvement as a botanical artist and teacher. As well as benefitting from the technical side of her instruction in watercolor painting, you will find her knowledge of the historical sources of red pigment very interesting.

Come and find out how to make red pigment work … to your advantage.
