color theory & Developing neutrals workshop
Control your colors so they don't control you!
This workshop focuses on the art of color mixing using oils or acrylics. Learn how to use complementary colors to create subtle neutral grays, which combined with pure hue, makes a composition sing.
We'll go through short exercises to implement the color theory and subsequently, as a final project, an abstract composition will be produced with dominant neutrals and pure color accents. Join us!
About the instructor
Julia San Roman
Julia San Román is a California artist born in Madrid, Spain. Although she concentrated her formal education on science, choosing to move to the United States to further her career and earning a PhD in Biology, the influence of her childhood exposure to art remained an integral part of her passion for life and, after receiving training in Studio Arts and Art History at the college level, she has committed her life to painting.
Lately, she has been focusing on light to express a sense of HOPE. Here, under the influence of the Southern California Light & Space Movement, she finds herself exploring abstraction with a new impetus, where she integrates geometric abstraction with naturalistic episodes of
light passing through clouds.
Since her epiphany, San Román has had solo exhibitions at the Oceanside Museum of Art, Cannon Public Gallery, the San Diego International Airport, Salazar Contemporary Art Exhibits and more locally. She has also been included in group exhibitions nationwide: Los Angeles, Houston, New York, Washington DC, Tulsa, New Orleans, and more. Her work has been reviewed by the L.A. critic, Grady Harp, for “POETS and ARTISTS,” as well as for the San Diego Union Tribune blogs, and featured a number of times for the Spanish newspaper, "DIARIO LA OPINION."
