Why is colour still such a struggle?

Over and again, I hear the same difficulties when I ask people about colour:

  • 1. Mixing the colours you see accurately
  • 2. Seeing colour as value and getting the values right
  • 3. colour that is either too garish or too dull

If you struggle with these things you're not alone. But these difficulties can be solved with a clear understanding of colour.

About Paul

Artist and Teacher. Obsessed with colour.

Who I am, and how I can help you

I teach colour to realist artists who want to be able to match the colours they see, mix any colour accurately, and move forward with creating beautiful work of their own.

I'm a realist painter and I'm mostly self taught.

When I started learning to paint realism seriously, there were a lot of hurdles to overcome. But none so difficult as colour.

Eventually, through meeting Graydon Parish, I discovered Munsell. It unlocked colour for me.

After working with it for a number of years, I reached a point where I realised that colour really doesn't have to be hard.

All you need is a practical approach to colour.

Now I'm making a living as an independent artist and my dream has come true. I believe it can for you too, but not if you're held back by difficulties at the easel - especially when those problems can be solved.

Realistic colour is most artists' biggest problem. I can help you solve it.

Here's what you'll get from the Keys to Colour
