Step-by-Step Practical Color Lessons with Printable Worksheets, Painting Tips, Definitions and More
Color Theory Boiled Down to the Practical Essentials
No fluff. No filler. Just easy to swallow bites of usable info.
Color Confidence 101 distills my 20+ years experience as a professional, award-winning painter. It simplifies the complexities of painting with color into simple concepts and strategies anyone can grasp.
You are guided through the 5 Secret Components of Color, building upon your experience with every Lesson. Each Lesson includes the necessary Color Theory, Practical Suggestions, an Exercise, Worksheet, Examples and Bonus Tips.
Each Component Builds on What You've Learned
Notice at right how every page is loaded with colorful Examples, Graphics, and Bullet Points. This makes the content easy to grasp quickly without a lot of tedious reading.
This eBook Course is designed to be used as a quick resource, both now and in the future. The printable Worksheets are meant to be used again and again as a painting reference.
Once you absorb how each Secret Component works, it will be natural to begin using it in your creative painting right away. Each chapter will gradually increase both your knowledge and confidence with color as you move through.
PLUS Complete Guide to Buying and Mixing Paint
There is a ton of Bonus Information included.
Almost every page gives you special Tips to make your painting easier. PLUS there is a whole reference section on paint. It includes suggestions for pigments that play well together, neutrals, how to mix acrylics and more.
The Basic Supply List doesn't require anything expensive other than 5 - 11 paint colors. It lists everything you'll need such as paper towels, water etc. This way you can easily set up a painting table and start working right away.
In addition, I've added Inspiration Sources, and a Definitions section as a reminder if you forget a color term.
PLUS Examples and Suggestions for Mixing Neutrals
The 5 Secret Component chapters cover Hue, Value, Saturation, Temperature and Harmony. There is also an added section on mixing harmonious Neutrals.
I have painted the Exercises myself so you can see an example from real life. Let me reassure you, there is no right and wrong way to do these exercises. And there are no right or wrong colors.
You'll find that each exercise invites you to explore your own favorite pigment colors. In fact you might even want to repeat the exercises again and again with all your paint colors. If you do, I suggest keeping them all in a binder for studio reference. This will be truly priceless information at the start of each artwork when planning your color scheme.
Hi, my name is Shirley Williams. When I first started painting many years ago, art schools were not teaching anything about Color that was useful. Even today, much of what is taught is just basic Color Theory.
The Color Wheel and some Basic Color Schemes are usually introduced. These are supposed to explain everything about using color to create harmonious palettes. But on their own, they aren't very helpful when physically mixing paint colors.
I look at a lot of art and often judge competitions. Rarely, do I see artists, even experienced painters, use their colors to full advantage.
After many years of my own frustration and intense study of color mixing, I came to realize some fundamental keys to creating beautiful colors. So I created this eBook self-study Course, Confident Color 101, to simplify the process for you too.
Painting is tons of fun. But agonizing over your choice of colors, or wondering how to make them more appealing is not fun at all. However, with the principles in this eBook along with some practice, you'll become much more confident and spontaneous with each creative project.
Wishing you many hours of enjoyable painting !

Thanks so much for all this brilliant information !!! And for taking the time to share it in a way that is really clear and easy to learn. I especially like that I can work at my own pace and use the worksheets as an ongoing reference.
I've been painting for many years, but have always struggled with making my colors work together in harmony. This ebook has been a godsend. I wish I had found your course years ago. There were so many "aha" moments.
I'm thrilled to have found your course on colour. I recently retired and am just starting to paint as a hobby. All my colours were either too bright or too dull before. Now it all makes sense. Thank you .
As a graphic designer, I thought I knew everything about color. It's one thing to understand color theory, but quite another to apply it. I paint a little for fun and have always played it safe. Thanks to this course I'm much more daring with my colors.
This course is not right for everyone. I only want you to buy this if you can benefit from Color Confidence 101
No experience - No problem! This course will set the foundation for your creative journey right from the beginning. You will learn exactly what you need to know and save yourself years of frustration.
You will save money too because I recommend painting with the fewest number of colors instead of a wide confusing assortment.
Yes it will help you if you struggle with color. This course will give you a practical way of putting Color Theory to work.
You might find some of it a review. However, you'll find lots valuable Insights and Tips guaranteed to help you take your use of color to a more sophisticated level.
Forever. It's yours to keep as a PDF file right on your own computer.
Although I mostly paint with acrylics, the principles I teach work equally well with oil, watercolor and even colored pencils.
With watercolor, substitute water instead of white to lighten colors. With colored pencil, you will layer the colors with light strokes to achieve the same results.
Nope. Not at all. I will show you how to make any colors you already have in your paintbox harmonize like magic.
However, if you're just starting or wanting to buy new colors, I do offer Suggestions and Tips that will save you time and money in the long run.
The Worksheets accomplish 2 important things for you as an artist. First, within the course, they help you understand the basic principles. You learn the most when you apply the principles to your own paint colors and notice the results.
Second, Worksheets are printable right on your desktop. If you print them on heavy office Cover paper, they continue to help you while you paint, as a valuable reference tool. I actually use them in my studio all the time. Paint colors sometime mix in unexpected ways, so the Worksheets can help you plan your colors before you begin. Thus you are free to be more spontaneous while you paint.
Color Confidence 101 is a self-paced course. Your color confidence will get stronger from Day 1. Each step builds upon the last. So depending upon how long it takes you to grasp a principle, it could take you a week to get through it, or even a year. But look at it as an experience journey and not a destination.
There's more actual practice than reading involved. Although, simply by reading through it you will gain tons of insights about paint color.
This course is meant to be a studio reference guide for as long as you continue to paint. The Worksheets themselves should continue to be valuable forever.
There are several reasons why buying Color Confidence 101 is a wise choice.
First of all, most of the information about color that you find online refers to digital color mixing. That's a whole different ballgame than mixing paint. Plus much of it, is just basic stuff without any practical application.
The most important reason why this course is worth your time and money, is that it comes out of my personal experience as a professional painter for over 25 years. I've gone through all the frustration myself and have made the color mixing process as simple and foolproof as possible.
