Supplies: so to make strange the autumn color palettes, we don't need a lot of supplies. We just need your water color paint open listing of the entire, uh, paint ballot by the colors I have in a project section off the glass. If you're interested on dumb, we'll need water. When it paints power, it will need, uh, water car paper. Worry. If you are having a schedule query you polis, you're of ballots that will work to also need any brush you are comfortable with. Working on a paper towel should dry brush. So when you need to take more beans than this more that, uh, it's very hopeful, but all what you'll need, So let's make some colors. 3. Color story 1: so in very first grand color palette will have soft a warm autumn colors we can use in Oakland. A cloud work and, um, and every mix will have one color, which will be repeating creating a color harmony as we talked in basics off color mixing class if you watched it. So, uh, we have a collection Naples Yellow. If you don't have discovered, you can try to use any yellow you have or ocher yellow pro bono work, too, So the first color is Naples yellow itself. But if it feels too bright to you, try to add a drop off violent agent. Well, it is a complimentary car off yellow, and it will neutralize it if it feels too bright for you. Next caller we have is sunk magenta with a little bit off Naples yellow and a lot of water , soft and beautiful, warmed up by and drop off Naples yellow so magenta we've Naples yellow like these. Next, let's add shower makes more magenta a little bit of violent, and Naples you again. This is too much yellow, so let more magenta and more violent. Now it's too much violent, so visas hook color here we have Magenta, the pilot, Naples yellow, of course. Next, let's makes a soft green collar. Well, he was teal, because I called Seo is officially called Azure Blue. I will be sharing all the cars in my car. Pull it in a project section, of course. So, um, when they say my gentle it's gonna create on prose. But magenta is easier to pronounce, and it's a more popular name of a car. Even it's no official, so we mix some steel were for Naples yellow course we can use morio. Thank you. So I keep gets in court so much yellow or too much good into my shop. Still, however, the result is just a soft, beautiful green. Yes, this is the right one. So here we have Teal. What a sort of blue at Naples. You next. Let's make some red orange for these trends, the color of that eso were using carmine red with Naples yellow that we get this creamy, beautiful orange, so it's got him in red. You can see carmine red is different than magenta. It's a warmer at Naples yellow, and the last color needs to be great and will use Naples yellow violet, which is complemented it. So, uh, they'll turn into any woodrow color and a little bit off ultramarine boom, and we'll use points of what? Yes, it is out of her this beautiful, warm shade of gray which will work great with all the colors in our transit Pillette because it also has the unifying color, which is Naples. You. So he used yellow Violet at Ultimate in Blue Services. Our world soft out of trends, the color palette. 4. Color story 2: saying Next home in next Renzi, full colors bullet will have following colors. We need almost black color. Oh, but I don't like using black. So let's use Payne's gray instead. If you don't have Payne's gray, you can use mics off. Okay, Um, I didn't blue with Sapio. Or you can add a little bit off other color, uh, in your black so it doesn't look too flat pants, can I?
