A possibility for our Watercolorists...

So many newcomers to watercolor painting struggle with color mixing!

They end up with muddy, insipid paintings and get frustrated at not being able to mix the right shade, tint or tone they need.

Our set of free cheat-sheets and reference charts make it quick and easy (even for complete beginners) to get to grips with the art of mixing fresh, vibrant colors.

They will save you paint, paper and hours of frustration!

With "Cheatsheets for Watercolorists" you'll get:

- A reference chart for mixing greens from 5 very common yellows and blues
- A reference chart for mixing a wide variety of warm and cool greys from just a few starting colors
- A reference chart for mixing the only 7 skin tones you need for any watercolour portrait
- A 'color bias' chart for primary colors. This might sound like a foreign language if you're a newcomer but it's easy to follow and unlocks the secret to avoiding muddy colors
- A step-by-step guide to making your own personalized color reference chart
- A list of transparent and opaque colors (great for more advanced watercolorists)
- Limited palette suggestions - because a limited palette is a key to success in the early days
- Limited brush set suggestions - don't have more than 5 or 6 brushes
- A step-by-step guide to stretching paper

We are incredibly grateful to everyone in our Concord Studio community - the families and teachers who have supported us over the past five years; the many talented storytellers, musicians, artists and other contributors who have brought our stories to life; and our fabulous Studio team who have helped to make Barefoot such a vibrant and welcoming place to visit.
