In 2008 our family developed Heritage MultiMedia paint under our international company GlobalArt®. In 2021 we transferred the name our studio company JansenArt® as there are other Global Art paint companies, but only 1 JansenArt®. You may see both names on some products. It is the same product and the same family company. Look for Heritage MultiMedia.
I started teaching color theory in 1983 after 4 years of college chemistry and physics. Physics helped me so much with the study of light. Artists need to know certain principles of light to do proper color mixing. There is a wide range of theories that artists have used over the years to present color. What we try to do is to explain color and mixes in a very easy to understand format we call "Paint It Simply". It will still require some study and practice, but we try to present is an easy and simplistic format. For our mixing, you need at least the 6 color set. As you advance, you may want to add a 12 color or Historic tones set if you want to make more historical colors. Color theory is something you can keep easy, or advance as far as you like. I am always studying and learning and will present these concepts to you in these lessons. Let's start our color journey!
The Heritage MultiMedia 6 Color Set is our basic set for Paint It Simply lessons. This is the set we recommend you start with.
Start with the 6 colors set, then as you progress through our system, add additional sets for more color mixing options. We have over 500 lessons written with this basic set.
