Gain a better understanding of colour

Shockingly, when many creatives think of colour theory, they associate it with colour wheels and believe that’s it. I know this because I used to be the same. 

This lack of knowledge happens for many reasons: Many educational curriculums tend to gloss over colour theory. A lack of colour knowledge at the foundation level tends to travel further.

I’ve been in the creative industry for over ten years. I’ve worked all across the field: from private companies to high-end design studios. The most crucial point: so many graphic designers and illustrators I’ve worked with have no notion of colour. Some graphic designers can get away with this, but illustrators definitely can’t. Knowledge of colour is what separates the truly extraordinary illustrators from the bad.

What I want you to take away from this is you’re not alone in this struggle. Even professionals wrestle with the concept of colour.

When I first started out I had no notion of colour. I bought TONNES of colour theory books, tried multiple mediums and read many articles – but nothing clicked. They all seemed to be saying the same thing, yet my artwork was still subpar.

I don’t want you to go through the same thing.

Having decent drawing skills and knowing how to utilise well thought out compositions can only get you so far. Without proper knowledge of colour, your artwork will always end up looking flat and lifeless.

What supplies do I need for the Learn Colouring course?

Paper (I recommend 220gsm thickness), pencil and anything you can use to colour. A cheap way to start is a 72 pack of coloured pencils.

I alternate between copic markers, coloured pencils, watercolour, acrylics, oils and digital mediums throughout the course in order to provide a vast array of learning for a multitude of mediums.

However, I will predominantly be using Copic Markers, Coloured Pencils as well as Pro Create and Photoshop.
