In class you will learn how to use the the three primary colors (red, yellow, blue) to make every other color on the color wheel, lighten colors with white, and use complementary colors (directly opposite on the color wheel) to darken colors. Your final landscape painting will be created with only red, yellow, blue and white acrylic paint.
