Well we have a very informative talk on Tuesday 23rd May from Patrick about using a colour wheel and how to mix various colours and shades. This was accompanied by a very interesting PowerPoint presentation.
This included showing how to cope with and understand the use pershading, shadows and colour casting. As normal with Patrick this was backed up by some of his excellent models to show the various techniques used. A whole hearted thank you Patrick from all of the member's.
All are enthralled by Patrick's talk on the use of colour
