Are you painting with aliveness and wonder? Are you cultivating experimentation in your art? Do you long to create your deepest work?
Hi, I'm Dr. Nancy Hillis. I’m an artist, author and Stanford trained psychiatrist and my mission is to guide artists to believe in themselves.
I've experimented with abstract painting for years. Several years ago I created a television program 'Creativity & Consciousness' where I interviewed artists on their creative process. One of the things I learned is that artists in every genre grapple with fear and self doubt and that the interior landscape affects everything!
I believe that abstract painting is a powerful way of getting at meaning and that art is a mirror that reflects our lives…the canvas reflects back our feelings, moods, interior states, and life.
I've guided thousands of artists in creating their deepest, most alive and meaningful work and I would love to guide you too!
Module 1: Welcome To Experimenting With Color
Welcome to Experimenting With Color. You'll explore and experiment with mixing color combinations such as secondary, intermediary, and analogous color schemes. You'll learn to simplify your palette as well as learn tips on color contrast that will wow you!
Module 2: Tertiary, Complementary & Neutral Colors
In this module you'll explore an array of color schemes including how to create gorgeous tertiary colors from secondary color mixes. You'll also create an array of neutrals with warm and cool variations using complementary colors. These color palettes can be used to create powerful, harmonious paintings.
Module 3: Experimentation, Simplicity & Constraint
In this module you'll explore the potent practice of simplicity and constraint while experimenting with color. You'll create one and two color palettes and see the power in these. You'll learn how to create a four color/two value palette that my students have found to be a game changer!
Module 4: Further Color Experimentation
In this module you'll learn the secrets of visual contrast using color. You'll see a video where I analyze several paintings in terms of visual contrast and how you can create visual excitement by increasing color contrast. I'll show you ways of working with the middle of the painting and there will be tips and commentary on this process.
Module 5: Investigating Color Through Experimentation
In this module, you'll see me begin a painting starting with color contrast concepts. Through five videos you'll see me complete the painting and I'll give you my thoughts and tips along the way. In particular, commentary from me about staying intuitive through the entire process of creating the painting. In essence, this is about trusting yourself.
Module 6: Experimenting With Water & Color
