My Basic Color Theory Course Launches July 25!



March 14, 2022, is when I started to edit and produce my Basic Color Theory Course. When I started this project, I had no idea what it would take and how much I had to learn. Four months later, I am ready to launch the first section of the course!

I have been teaching this course since 2011, and the recorded version of the course is the same as it was when I was teaching in person but on steroids. For the first time in my teaching history, students get a front-row seat right behind my shoulder and watch every brush stroke I make, how I work the paint on the palette even how I clean my brush. Students receive clear and precise instruction through real-time video and can pause or rewind the instruction. The one indisputable fact I have learned over the years is that not everyone learns at the same pace. I love this new format of sharing my drawing and oil painting instruction it allows students to work at their own pace.


My Basic Color Theory course is a bundle of five sections, and each section represents an 8-10 week class when I taught this in a physical studio. When I taught this in person, the first set of classes, section 1, focused on the fundamentals of color theory and creating a color wheel. The second set of classes, section 2, focused on red and green complimentary color mixes and painting a still life using those colors. The third and fourth sets of classes create the same exercises and still life paintings but focus on blue and orange and then yellow and purple. With this new format, I’ve added a fifth section bringing everything together that students have learned in the previous four sections with a final still life painting, And once again, students work right along with me as I paint the last still life painting.


I am offering a special “Founding Students” offer for all five sections of my Basic Color Theory course to fifteen new students. Enroll in my Basic Color Theory - Sections 1-5 Bundle before July 22, 2022, and receive all five course sections for the price of section 1! Section 1 is complete and officially launches on Monday, July 25, 2022. Section 2 is in the final stages of production, and I will start to upload those lessons in the next couple of weeks. You will gain access to the lessons for sections 2-5 as they are uploaded and before they are publicly launched. 


This offer will go live on Tuesday Jul 12, 2022 , and those on my studio email list will be notified that day; and I will share the link to Basic Color Theory - Sections 1-5 Bundle course.

I have a group of fourteen students currently enrolled and actively taking my Basic Color Theory course. Most of them have completed section 1 and are anxiously waiting for me to start uploading the lessons for section 2. Their feedback is extremely positive, and they all agree that the delivery and presentation of my instruction are easy to follow and very thorough. 


Here is what one of my current students has to say about the course;

“I have been working in graphite ever since I came to Robert’s studio in 2019. Recently I began to consider moving to a color palette. Robert recommended I begin with his Basic Color Theory course. It has been the best experience! Through this course, I am learning the basics of color theory - color space, color models, inherent values, shading, tinting, and so much more. And I am also learning the basics of oil painting - paint brushes, palettes, tubes of paint, mixing paints, linseed oil, mineral spirits, and the entire process of painting. Not to mention that I already have two “paintings” - my color wheel and my primary colors' inherent value strings.”


“Robert’s teaching method is meticulous and consistent. By the end of each exercise, he has helped me build confidence and knowledge to the point that I believe I could carry on the work on my own in my studio. But it’s a whole lot more fun working alongside Robert! He is engaging, informative, and talks through every detail. We get to see his process and learn from his decisions even as we are making our own.”


“Robert teaches to all artistic levels. With two exercises complete, I already feel like an artist who works in oils. I cannot wait for the next exercise!”

Below are the course mockups and a short description of what each section covers.



Section 1 covers an overview of what color is and the first two exercises, the “Six Primary Color Biased Twelve-Step Color Wheel” and “The Six Primaries Inherent Value Scales.”



Section 2 concentrates on red, green, and their complementary color mixtures. You will create exercise 3, “Creating and Painting Red and Green’s Complimentary Color Strings, Plus the Tints, Shades, and Greyed Strings.” This exercise is followed up with the first still-life painting of the course using red, green, and the mixtures from exercise 3.



Section 3 concentrates on blue, orange, and their complementary color mixtures. You will create exercise 4, “Creating and Painting Blue and Orange’s Complimentary Color Strings, Plus the Tints, Shades, and Greyed Strings.” This exercise is followed up with the second still-life painting of the course using blue, orange, and the mixtures from exercise 4.



Section 4 concentrates on yellow, purple, and their complementary color mixtures. You will create exercise 5, “Creating and Painting Yellow and Purple’s Complimentary Color Strings, Plus the Tints, Shades, and Greyed Strings.” This exercise is followed up with the third still life painting of the course using yellow, purple, and the mixtures from exercise 5.



Section 5 of this course is where you will paint one final still-life painting, a bit more challenging than the previous three, using all the colors and mixtures from this course.
