Reveals all secrets of mixing colors (8 Classes)

Is this you?...

Many artists struggle with how to use and mix the right colors. Some keep mixing endlessly, without knowing in which direction they are going, and never reach the color they were looking for. Some are picking wrong color combinations all the time, although they feel intuitively something is wrong. Still, they don't know how to get out of this situation.

Let me help you with this.

I was an artist that lacked one of the most important tools an artist needs, the ability to pick the right color combinations without hesitating. I threw away a lot of paint because of the wrong mixing. I overcame this situation with a number of good teachers. What I learned I have listed in this course.

This is Part 2 of Essential art classes that walk you through the world of color.

This is what we will cover in this course:

  • You will get to know the third aspect of color, Chroma, and how this affects your color mixing.
  • What is Chroma? Why do we need to know about it?
  • What are Complementary Colors and how to make them work for you.
  • We will look into Cool and Warm colors, and into Color Contrasts and Harmony.
  • We will cover the differences between pigments and how this affects your mixing.
  • We will look into effective color mixing by using a limited palette, paint with just a few colors.
  • How to mix a color you saw in a magazine, a mixing method that does not fail.
  • We will look into how to keep oversight and control over your palette, so you will not 'get lost' in your mixtures. You will look with 'different eyes' and will know exactly how to keep an oversight over your palette.

This course is suitable for beginners and advanced students.
Please first take Part 1 of this three-part course for a full understanding about color.

What will you get from this course:

  • We will not only talk/read about color, this course is packed with exercises that help you experience color.

Can I do the courses in any particular order?
We love to help artists grow in their abilities, but many of you do not have the opportunity to enrol in extensive art education. For this reason, we try to make each individual course as stand-alone as possible. Our general advice is to first work on a foundation of drawing. This teaches everything you need to know before starting painting. Drawing deals with our questions about the form, composition, how to set up an image, etc., without having to deal with paint, color, and mixing difficulties. The best would be to start at the Bargue Drawing Course. Let it be clear: Dutch Art Academy presents high-level courses: you will learn new things here, even though you are an experienced artist! (if not you get your money back). Also, take note that the teachings/techniques you get in this first course will be used in the following courses. So the best strategy is to start at Bargue Drawing Course to get the best out of our courses. Regarding this Color course part 2 - we recommend you start with part 1.

Marion de Jong

At age 4 Marion held grandpa's watercolor pencils for the first time. They came in a metal tin, with all the colors of the rainbow. This was the first time Marion was really attracted to color and drawing. The pastel portraits made by her grandfather awakened her artist's heart. This first experience with 'art' at a young age never let go of her. After learning a 'solid profession' as a secretary, she started a long-lasting learning curve that brought her artwork further.


She started her artist aspirations with watercolour painting and then switched to acrylic and mixed media. In her early years she mainly worked in a modernist style.

'I have made many inspired works based on my personal faith experiences. From 2013 there was a greater need for realistic works. I started to focus more on realism and the technique that is needed for this.

I developed a love for drawing and started to paint in oil as well, in the tradition of the Old Masters: I made master copies or preliminary studies of them in order to investigate and master the techniques. From this foundation of realism, being able to grasp form, tonality, and expressiveness, my mission is to revitalize the Dutch tradition of drawing and painting. It would be so beautiful if this Dutch legacy were to be preserved for future generations.'

Marion is the founder of Dutch Art Academy online school to facilitate realistic art education.


Marion studied at the Gooische Academie in Laren, NL for 5 years and took lessons in watercolor, acrylic, and oil. She did several portrait and model courses, among others with Humphrey Bennett, Svetlana Tartakovska, and Anatomy/écorché with Per Olof Penrick (former Florence Academy of Art anatomy teacher). And portrait, landscape, and still life at the Russian art academy in Florence. In addition, she is constantly engaged in self-study.

Marion has been teaching drawing and painting in the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Germany since 2006.
