Arbitrary Color Side Profile Woman Portrait Oil Painting by Albin Veselka

Variety in Arbitrary Color

Challenge and even defy your assumptions about local color in this offbeat tutorial on arbitrary color. Expand your variety with wild, exaggerated colors that favor vibrancy over strict realism. You'll learn to play with lose strokes and disparate skin tones while still maintaining accurate values. Once the real power of this technique becomes apparent, you'll begin to recognize its wide use throughout many Russian masterpieces. ( 3+ hours)

Albin Veselka

Born in 1979 in Wyoming and living most of his life in Idaho, Albin's interest in art came at about six years old. He is very grateful to his parents who were instrumental in encouraging his interest and development in art even when resources were scarce.
Albin credits the knowledgeable and student oriented faculty of the BYUI art department for giving him "the tools all representational artist must have to open the door to communicating in the visual arts". Early in his career he also received direction which helped him break into the gallery scene while he was a college student. Since then he has continued in developing and have been blessed to receive recognition and honors that have aided his progress.
