Important things you’ll learn from this video:
…And much, much more
Let’s face it … we’re addicted to paint! We love to go to the paint aisle and try what’s new, right? There are so many paint tubes shouting, “Try me!” “No, try me!”
Yet once you figure it out, there is nothing more satisfying than nailing it!
It’s one of those moments where you throw your hands in the air, do a little leap of joy, and shout, “Yes!!” because finally, after all this time, you figured it out.
So, which color and what mix are going to create the perfect color harmony effect?
Well, that’s the question a passionate young artist pondered as she studied the masters. Yet she could not find anyone who knew. So she toiled endlessly for years to figure it out.
Artist Jennifer Balkan has found the solution, and she wants to share it with you. In fact, Jennifer wants to save others all the time she spent figuring out how to create such wonderful paintings. So much so that she co-founded an art school. And not just any art school, but a classically based atelier (workshop of the artist), and the first in America founded by four women artists. And that school is a phenomenon.
We fell in love with Jennifer’s work and her passion for art and teaching. And, knowing not everyone can pack up and move to Austin, Texas, to attend Atelier Dojo, we knew we had to bring Jennifer to our studio to create a video for you.
In this premium art instruction video, Jennifer enthusiastically shows you how to mix any color, any value, and any temperature with the most basic of limited color palettes.
Follow Jennifer’s lead and mix all the colors you can imagine with her palette made up of just four colors — yes, you read that right … just four colors!
Now, there are lots of artists who paint with four colors. That’s pretty cool. But there’s a lot more to this story. You see, you still have to know how to express those colors to get that look of elegance in your paintings.
Liven Up the Color and Elegance in Your Portraits
Jennifer’s obvious love for color comes through in all of her paintings. And you’ll find yourself loving color more than ever when you see her portrait demonstration of Woman in Red.
She shows you how to boost what you see in subjects to liven them up with color more vibrant than is actually there, while making your paintings have that feel of taste and elegance. This is a perfect solution if you have struggled to add more life and taste to your portraits.
The outstanding aspect regarding Ms. Balkan's painting demo is her commitment to describing and explaining every step of her painting. This is not an easy task. Oftentimes artists, in order to concentrate on their work neglect to impart , in detail, their process. Ms. Balkan accomplishes this to perfection. She is a tremendously talented artist as well as a tremendously talented communicator. Bravo!
This is an excellent video. Jennifer shares a wealth of knowledge that is pertinent to all portrait painters! Especially enjoyed how she used a limited palette to create a painting with beautiful color harmony.
Jennifer's excellent video is helpful in so many ways. As artists who paint, we are constantly learning, and her skills at distilling portraiture into pure, useful instruction is superb. Her skills at communicating reveal not only the important basics of painting, but also thought processes as she brings her subject to life. Cannot watch this without coming away inspired. Thanks, Jennifer!
Really appreciated Jennifer's portrait instruction. I have a collection of portrait videos and this is my favorite. Jennifer is very methodical in her approach and enjoyable to watch. She thoroughly discusses her process and you are able to see everything she does from beginning to end. You are also able to see her palette, and how she mixes and applies paint. The limited palette she uses is a game changer. So often there are so many paints on the palette that it becomes distracting. Jennifer's process is a joy to follow. My recommendation... BUY THIS.. you won't be disappointed..!!
