At times the pigments in paints seem to make profound and apt analogies and interpretations of what lies in front of us, but at others it seems nearly impossible to capture the vibrancy of colors as seen in nature. In this workshop, come learn a little about the properties and histories of some of our favorite pigments, and learn a lot about how to use them through palette mixing and observation in the field.
