Kim Fjordbotten

"Which colours do I need?" It is the most asked question at The Paint Spot and in an art class. Beginners and students want a definitive answer. But the honest answer is "It depends."

It not enough to just paint what you see. Colour doesn't only describe an object. It is through colour we know the season, time of day, even the temperature. Light is important because it shows us colour. In some paintings it might set the mood and in other paintings colour may be spiritually significant.

"Colour exploration is powerful and fun. I do like making colour charts. It is part warm up, part mediation, and always educational. Showing the practical application of all this theory is the goal of this workshop series" - Kim

As owner of The Paint Spot, Kim Fjordbotten is passionate about helping artists use materials and make art. She is available as a speaker and educator for teachers and art associations. The Paint Spot offers exhibitions, classes, and beautiful art materials to inspire your creativity.
