Hello Artists and Friends,

We only have a couple of spots still available in this amazing workshop experience! Students who have attendced the past two workshops have left with rave reviews!  DONT MISS OUT!

Here's a quote from one of the attendee's of the last workshop

"I was at the last boot camp and came away with more knowledge and enthusiasm for painting then I did after four years of art college. I highly recommend that if you can take the time to take this session, you should do it! If I could have taken the time off work I would do again. I had a great time."

Scott Seeto: Concept Artist at Disney Toons studios  

 If you’re interested in improving your ability to see color more simply and paint it more directly this workshop is for you.  In five days you will paint approximately 30 paintings from life and cover multiple variations of seven basic contrasts of color theory.  Critical aspects of color theory and design are presented and practiced through painting from real life situations.  By creating model set-ups specific to aspects of color theory rather than color swatches, you don’t just learn color theory, you see it, paint it, and own it!
            Demos and critiques will be ongoing throughout the five days.  This is not a portrait, or technique class, it is all about pushing your limits to improve your ability to perceive and understand the effect of light through color relationships.
During each workshop I document each pose, then present the specific color theory, along with notes on the process and procedures for each set-up.  Artists are encouraged to upload their paintings into the document to create their own personal color journal of their workshop experience.  For more information or if you are interested in seeing examples of past journal pages contact me at: billperkinsart@yahoo.com or
