THURMONT, MARYLAND, USA, June 16, 2022 / — Barn studios today announced their new live online course, the Forgotten Secrets of Color Control: An Introduction to Fletcher’s Color Wheeldelivered through the revolutionary online arts education platform, Terracotta (

This new offering of the basic Barnstone Method courses tackles the challenges of choosing the right palette and mixing colors head-on, by diving into the Fletcher color control approach, which was both widely used and taught in 1800s and early 1900s, but broke down. use for decades. Master artist Myron Barnstone has rediscovered these techniques of using a skillfully crafted palette to:

~ identify the exact colors desired
~ be able to match and reproduce these colors accurately
~ ensure all colors match across all work created

The Fletcher Color System, taught by Barnstone Master Guide Sarah Gayle, demonstrates the practical application of using a limited palette that is also surprisingly flexible and unrestricted. Using this varied triad approach allows:

~ limits for color selection and use
~ a visual diagram for clarity and repeatable results
~ an excellent high quality color palette
~ colors that always harmonize and do not contradict each other

“Myron always said: learn to mix your paint slowly, so you can paint quickly,” says instructor Sarah Gayle. “Barnstone’s approach to mastering color control using the Fletcher system is precise and elegant: Compared to the precision of music creation, this structured approach to creating your color palette allows artists to tune their instrument of color when creating their artistic composition.. It is a color system that is useful to figurative and abstract painters.
