Asymmetric Block Colour and Colour Melting

With Claus Hagenhoff
Duration17 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


Claus Hagenhoff’s demonstrates a fine example of close level colour work with polarity of tone using an asymmetric block colouring technique. Claus provides advice on colour palette, sectioning, melting and suitability. 

The final result is a bonny array of warm and cool shades of intense warm copper and red, violet tones with an asymmetric placement for full playful integration of light.
