Neutral Territory: 50 Shades of Gray with Carol Soderlund.

Fri - Tue, July 31 - Aug 4, 2015
Have you been frustrated when the dye houses discontinue one of your favorite black dyes? Do you sigh in frustration, because all the samples you have developed with these dye go out the window? Learn about making your own black mixes from the pure primary dyes. We will create the ever elusive
• Neutral blacks, that gradate to neutral grays • Warm blacks, that gradate to pinky lavender • Cool blacks, that gradate to steely blue •Grunge blacks, that gradate to greenish hues
In addition the class will cover creation of many neutral studies--tans, browns, gray-blues, gray-reds, and other chromatic grays. Think of the palest alabaster to inky night sky--all values ranges will be examined. Taupes and tans can be fascinating as well--ecru, heath, titanium, putty, and driftwood. Sharing our results, we will compile a large reference book--our own 50 Shades of Gray will just be the beginning of our explorations in Neutral Territory, as we cross into 50 Shades of Brown as well. 
Call to register, space is limited!   Tuition $600, $75 non-refundable deposit require
