Mixes

I always try to create various value streams of color, not mixing solid colors but having marbled colors, starting from dark to light. That way I can pick up various shades, without mixing, as I go.

  • SG+IB = very dark green
  • AC+CY = bright orange
  • AC+YO = dull orange
  • YO+CY = medium yellow gold (add TW to create value stream)
  • CY+TW= pale yellow (add TW to create value stream)
  • Add touches of TW light greens to create various shades of green.

Medium

Safflower Oil (artist grade) diluted to 50/50 – with Galkyd Lite Medium (has a dryer in it).
