Color and the Artist

Michael Wilcox' first publication "Blue and Yellow Don't Make Green" published first time in 1987 changed the way many artists and designers use and mix colors. His subsequent book, published in 2000, "Wilcox Guide to the Finest Watercolor Paints" was the first publication to cover the wide range of different pigments used in artists' watercolors and resulted to positive changes in many manufacturers' products. 
Denver Botanic Gardens started teaching 15-hour Color Mixing course within the Botanical Illustration curriculum as a prerequisite for all the water media in 1998. Susan T. Fisher designed the course based on the Michael Wilcox system and this course is now developed to one of our corner stones among the core courses. 
Last week we had the pleasure to host Mr. Michael Wilcox for two consecutive seminars: one day for a passionate group of color mixing enthusiasts and another to introduce his new book “The technique of glazing”.
Michael Wilcox is repeating these seminars in Richmond,Virginia (August 23-24) and Atlanta, Georgia (September 6-7). Warmly recommended for everyone who is using color in their work or leisure!
