Transcripts

1. Color Mixing Basics. Introduction: Hello and welcome to my new water color class. When I was that I didn't debate. I wanted to have all possible colors and vote the set of 50 watercolors. But actually, zed huge said that didn't help me to improve my watercolors skills. For what do you need so many colors if you don't know how to combine them properly, would you like to know how out of this scholar said gets all these beautiful shades, if you ask experienced artists, are what makes us abandon harmonious? One of the things they will tell you that is a limited color palette. By then you say, what can you do with onlys the scholars as a cigarette days in that color mixing, by knowing how to get out of these six colors are hundreds of other shades will skyrocket your watercolor skills. In this class, we will explore as a basic characteristics of the color as well. Yes answer duration will see in practice are what does a primary colors and how you can get the secondary ones. How you can use a complimentary color, and how to use in practice as a color wheel. This class is learned by doing class, and it's the only way how you can achieve or that feeling of color mixing. And two, will be able to do a regrade any color you wish in the future. All videos and real time so you can paint along with me if you're new to this channel, welcome breaths or Follow button on the dock, the January and these creative journey rarely or rashes. And let's have fun. 2. Supplies: In this class I will use the following supplies. What the color paper? I will use a one sheet of A4 size paper. And then out of A3 size sheet of paper, I will make an accordion book that is like our color mixing dictionary, let's say like this. Then we will need color. So I will use as a, so what the color essential, so sad by Daniel Smith, which includes two yellows, two reds, and blues. It's induced. So check separate lesson where I'm talking about the colors and which ones you can substitute these ones. Then I will use brush. This is number six, silver black velvet. So better to use one which would be like squirrels or imitation or squirrels hair so that it will give quite well water or the color palette that we are going to mix quite a lot today. Water and better to change what are quite often so that to see and to get the colors which are cleaner. And then we will need liner and benzyl in order to prepares these table and some paper towels in order to remove that extra moisture. So prepare your materials. And let's start with the exciting part. 3. Colors: In this class I will use as is essential set of primary colors by Daniel's meat. And it contains only six colors. I think that when I was a beginner, I was thinking like, oh, but it's really few colors. So what you will be able to paint with these colors. And I have bought 50 colors. And I've got really lost with all those 50 shades. Because at the end, if you don't know how to make them, how to compliment, how to make really harmonious color pellets. Then your paintings as they won't be, they will be missing something, but you won't be able to detect. Okay, and what is missing? So now I would like to share with you that is my knowledge that actually in order to understand how it works now and how to find the different harmonious color combinations of colors you will need. Actually, it's only six colors to start with later. Yeah, you can buy really many and use as many of them as you want about. You will know already how, when and where to use them. Okay? So if you will pay attention, then the colors are hansa yellow light. You can, if you don't have the Scala, you can substitute it with lemon yellow and new gamboge. You can substitute it with cadmium yellow, dark or cadmium yellow, a mid-tone. So that is up to you. What you have are depending what you have in your color. Palette. Quinacridone rose, you can substitute with any rosy magenta, Garmin like any rows which you have. This is parallel Scarlett. You can substitute it with cadmium red. Hello, blue. So that is any blue or any phthalo blue which you have. And French Ultramarine that usually also in all color palettes or you will have ultramarine. So if you will have a look, there are two yellows, two reds, and two blues. They think that once we will start to paint, you will see that these three colors, as they are cool shades of these colors. And these are worm shades out of these primary colors. Okay, Let's go further. I will show you my color palette. It contains like all these are pains or from the cubes. And if you have also some like primary set of Bain's or inducer. So I will show you how to use them. That is just a set is another color. By the way, also really beautiful. That has been agreed on gold. And you just squeeze it in one of the cells like this, your clean it and close it and keep it. Usually I did in the evening and then I leave their color palette like open overnight so that it will get dry and I would be able to use it next day. Otherwise, if like this, that it's possible to take quite a lot of paint. And then you will like waste quite a lot of inter, which you don't want to use. These primary colors. Here. These are a yellow, a red rose, and he has, or as also two blues which we are going to use. The first thing which I would like go make that it would be easier for your reference is to make as a swatch of your colors. So here is that this hansa yellow light, new gamboge. We're all Scarlet. By the way, yes, I would ask you to make this also will help you to make warm shades from one side and cool shades from another side. This one is vinegar don Rose, phthalo blue, and French ultramarine. So these are the colors. And I would like you to give us the numbers. Does this colors that it would be easier later for our color mixing. So one though, 3456. 4. Class Project: Your class project for this class is going to be to prepare color swatches, tables. One of them, it will be this way, the most simple one. But the main, our exploration of color mixing is going to be this accordion book, where we are going to explore first as William, colors, which we have cells that are from more intense one to one diluted one, which is quite typical in watercolors when you use quite a lot of our diluted colors. Then we will explore what kind of orange, green, and violet, and where we can get out of a four different color mixes. So we will explore these in separate pages. And also we will explore how to get wireless. And why you will know why we have in our essential set of watercolors to read one goal shader, which is rows and another warm shade. But also you will find out how to get black color out of six colors. And then that is a most valuable and most crucial part of this course is as mixing of three primary colors. And how do you get your color balanced or by using complimentary colors. So here we will explore how you can get as a range of different green shades, brown shades. Then we will move on to this range of brownish, violet gray shades of colors. And here we will have a look at how to get these kind of a pastel dreamy colors. So which mixtures to use? And as well a warm shades of brown or which I find it a really great for painting animals for, or these kind of things are. And also like to have in your warm color palette. And as a final step, we will explore their Shades of Grey, which you can get out of these colors, gray and black cells that sometimes you really need these kinds of colors and how you can get them having these six basic colors. And I will show you as well as a ways, ways that how do I make sense and explore your color mixing based on values and does a dominance of one color or another color as well. We will make these typical color mixing chart. And I will show you different ways of how you can feel in this door. Half-cell offers this demo. So by the end of the class, I am sure that they are going to be an expert in color mixing. And you will finish here with these really, really, really great away. That this reference, which later you can use for painting, whatever you wish. So that it would be really your gouache way to find the color which you are looking for. And you will know already which ones you will have two mics. Please upload your class project to the class project gallery. I'm really eager to see your color mixes and I would like to hear your feedback whether these color mixing practice has helped you. And one more thing to keep in mind that this class is learning by doing so, just watching, it won't, you won't get any like this feeling and knowledge. So only by doing that the your hand and your mind does ends, they will get in some kind of kind of connection. And these are will transmit you these knowledge of color mixing. So just a brief barrier materials. And let's move with our color mix in practice. 5. Accordion Book Assamble: Before I will start though with color mixing that we need to make some preparations. One of them is the prepares a swatch chart and another one that is our accordion color mixing book. So as for the chart, it's quite easy as that is seven cells by seven cells. And each cell is one centimeter and eight millimeters wide. That is a four size sheet of paper and I have done into z. So, so that is like from 0 till 14. And I have been making marks like 246 and then two millimeters before so that it's quite easier and really fast. Even better. And the more convenient if you will do it with some washi tape. So then you just stick it that. And now it's the funniest part is how to make your own Accordion book. I think that is really fun and let's do it. I will show you first though the idea how to do it with some like sample paper. I will use a for my one, I will use an A3 size paper, but this one is just more paper in order to show you how you can do it. So the idea is half and then you bended again and as a half. Okay, So you have already exists now as always, the same half. And, and as a half. Once again. So when you open you will have already hear the marks. You can do it both ways so that it will be bended properly. If your watercolor paper is 200, 300 grams or it could be more complicated, does end with this one to do it. But anyway, you will manage. So here we have the cells and now you can decide which way you can do it this way or this way. So my one, I would like it to be wider so that like this. So once you have done Z, so we will need to make several marks. That is here when it's like finishing the third one. And the line up, god is going to be Z's way deals this point. The next one is going to be this point. And the line will go in that direction. And the third line of God is going to be here in that direction. So then we take our scissors. So you will get this kind of, I would say that it looks like m. Okay, so now let's assemble our garden book. Then we start from this side and start bending it. Then once we get to this turn, we banned from this side and go in the other direction. Again here we're bends this way and start moving again. So here we have already our according the book. So here it, how it looks like this one say you can make your here, you can put something to fix it so that it won't be opening. Or this also pages you can use for something. So this is a way how it looks like in the assemble. And now I will show you how I will do it with my piece of paper with a real one. So here I have bended it. You can see that it's really it's quite thick. So in this way, yeah, I have been doing it both directions. This one, then the opposite. And so I couldn't do it as easily as always, that piece of paper. So each side I was doing like separately. And now let's make, so here is a point. When I slice, when I, so here I will have to cut this part. Then this is a point. I will have to cut this way and this one. So let's start and we'll see what we will get. And here we have our guardian book. It looks cool. So here we have quite many pages to explore color mixing. So if you are ready, then let's move to the fun part is that is to explore color mixing. 6. Color Values: Let's litigators the first pages of the book to the exploration of the value of our colors. So if you will take quite concentrated color. So that is quite concentrated. So you can see that's how it is. I encourage you to use today quite many jars with water. So I will show you the way I am doing here. Maybe like this so that you will be able to see it. So then I will deep just a bit so you can see that I have removed a bit of the color. And here it's already lighter color. This William cells. Then again, I clean my brush and I remove a bit more of their paint and even more. And you'll see how it gets lighter. And then finally, I clean my brush and then I move to the next color. So let's try here. Was a warm yellow, again, just a bit. And then I see, So then that is another option, how you can actually, by adding more water. So you can do it as opposite way. So here to make the next column will, will do the opposite way so that you would see how it works as opposite way if you start with water and even light. So the next column, and let's make it deserves as away. I start though with water. Can you see how much water here I place? Just dipping my brush into the water like this. Here I have really lots of water and now I will add a beta alpha color. So here I have, I did just on the tip of my brush. I heard it and I start to mix it with water. And can you see how clear it is? So that is our first color. Let's try. Here. It's really, really light. And AZO think, which I would like to show you that in case you have introduced quite a lot of water. And here you have like a pedal. You just clean your brush and dry it. And then with a deep of brush, you just absorb that extra water. Okay, so here we have that first color. Now let's add a bit more of paint. So here, now I use only this small pedal because I want the color to be more concentrated so I don't need so much water. And here you can see that it's already darker shade of color. And again, you can see this pedal. Let's remove it. So I clean my brush, I dry it with a kitchen towel, and then I just remove this extra pedal. Again. I add a bit more color to this pedal. And you can see that now it's more concentrated. But still there is quite a lot of water. And clean my brush. And if I remove this, and now let's add even more color to this one. But still it is quite watery, so I'm just almost no water. I'm moving here so that my bandage won't have so much water. And you can see now I get really rich color. Still. It is possible to move further and to make it even drier and darker. And four here as well, you can find more middle, well-used so that it would be lighter. Okay, So then let's finish here with the rest of colors. Okay, so here I have already my color swatch ready. And that is a way how also you can vary by using different, applying different values, all of your colors, how you can make uses Emma, in your paintings and already to create contrast. Let's move to the next part. 7. Secondary colors: How to mix Orange: And now I would like to talk about the color wheel. One of the things as you can see, that dislike, know that to understand the know. Like the basic principle, that is three primary colors, yellow, blue, and red. So that is the ones which we have. Then, by mixing these two primary colors, you will get green, yellow, blue, and green. And those two colors which are between them. That is what happens if you will add a bit more of the first color, in this case a yellow. And another one is what happens if you will add a bit more of blue-collar, but the same mixture of yellow and blue. In the case of yellow and red, the same, you will get orange. And then it's just a variation. So whether you will have more of color one or of color two. And here it's the same. So the idea is that out of these three primary colors, we will get secondary colors, which are green, orange. And while it now, I encourage you to try to get disease secondary colors out of this. To pair a to a set of primary colors. What I'm going to do that, we know that by mixing yellow and red, we will get orange. So let's check what do we will get if we will mix yellow with rows and then this yellow with red, and what will happen? It will take the warmer shade of yellow and mix it also with Rosa and we read for your convenience, I will show you what we are going to do now. So this one, we are going to mix. These ones, we are going to mix and we'll see whether there is any difference. So I'm Dagan yellow. That is, you can take lemon yellow, know that option which you have and I will mix it. I do not clean my brush with the same brush. I'm adding B of EBIT of red, and I'm mixing them in order to get some nice orange color. So here I have my orange color and I will place it here. So that is my first secondary color which I have got. And on the top I will indicate that is Number 1 plus 4. So 1 plus 4, and I get this orange. So in parallel, I invite you to, also to feel our accordion book. So that we are taking this orange color and we place it here in the middle. So then we will be back to this one. Our next experiment is going to be what will happen if we will take the same yellow but different red. And again, I'm mixing. So here you see that I have taken too much rows. That is can agree don Rose. So I will need to add a bit more because I haven't got my orange color, so and still I'm not there. Now it starts to turn orange. So you can see that now it's unit to see you there resulting color, but you will get to this resulting color. You will get really huge range of different shades. And that is what is beautiful. Okay, sell that to what happens if I will mix yellow with cool shade of red with rows, and then I get this orange. We will indicate this. This one will be here in parallel. Let's feel law, our codon book, it because I want to show you so many things that I don't know how to organize it better. So for this color mixture, we have been using hansa yellow light. And for this one also we have been using Hansa Yellow Light. Okay, so that, that is our colors which we have used. For this one we have used warm red. I will place it here. And for this one we have used the rose color. I will place it here. Yeah. So and another thing as what we have been talking with color wheel, that in fact the in-between. And while we were mixing, we could see that here we get other ranges of colors. So what will happen here? That is, in case this is color one, color two. So here, orange. That is a result. When we get there more or less like equal portions of the color, they aren't equal, but that means that our aim here is to get orange. But for this one, what will happen if we will add just a tiny amount of second color? So let's see. That is our yellow. And here we will add just a tiny amount, really, really tiny amount of red. I think it was too much. So here I have added a bit more of yellow. And here you can see that I have got this yellow, really warm shade of yellow. And what will happen if it would be the opposite that to this red, I will add just a tiny amount of yellow cell, then it's going to be a bit warmer shade of this red. Let's have a look still, it's not orange, but you can see that it's warmer shade of this red. So here you can see that section of the color wheel between yellow and red, but this case cool yellow and warm red. Let's have a look now. What will happen if we will take this cool yellow? And add just a tiny amount of quinacridone rose or any rows which you have. So here we have added already and it's changed already is a color. So here we have broadly, I would add a bit more of yellow here. So it's warmer yellow. And what will happen if we're a bit of a yellow, we will add two rows color. So here we have rose color and I will add a bit of yellow, so we will get warmer shade of rows. So that is already another beautiful color. And just play, I see that here. I have in-plane and it's more like the color which you are looking for. Yeah. So here we have seen how behaves a z school shade of yellow. Let's move further. Our next experiment is going to be a warm shade of yellow, how this one will behave. So here I have yellow. I will fill in this part of my color mixing book. And from the site right away here, my aim is to show you how different shades of orange we get. And you will see we will get to more shades of orange. And I forgot here to indicate that this one it was one plus three. Yeah. So that's to remember which colors. So we have mics. And now do this yellow, I will add a bit of a warm shade of red. And you can see that I have got a really nice, so here is warm shade and zed is orange, which I have got four here. So here it is. And now you can see this part. So this is, this orange, which I have got warm red. So here I have warm red. And we can see, have a look already. What will happen if we will add a bit more of yellow to this color mixture, then it will turn into really, really bright and warm me. Hello. I would say this color is golden yellow, the one which we have got. So now you know, if you don't have golden yellow in your color palette, you can mix it out of warm yellow with warm red cell that is golden yellow you've got. And what will happen if we will add a bit more of a red so that as opposite way so that it will be read with a bit of yellow. So in my case, I'm using the same battle. And you can see that I'm starting to absorb beat by beat that yellow, but steals at the dominant color in my color paddle. Is red. So then we get z is really warm shade of red, but it's like it's warmer. You can see that this is cooler compared to this one. This looks warmer because it contains already a bit of yellow. And here Let's indicators that it has been that our color number 2, number 4. And you see we have already three shades of orange, depending on for what end to which one we need. We can choose which colors to mix in order to get that orange, which we are looking for. And then next one that is warm yellow, and we'll mix it with a bit of a rose color. So this happens. Our first aim is to get orange color. And I add more layers I'm mixing. And now you can see that this looks more like orange, but I think that I am still missing a bit of yellow. But you can see that as many shades you can get out of these two colors. This one is really beautiful orange color. Look. So that is our first orange, and let's place it here in the middle. So here I add. That is, I have mixed with Rhodes scholar. And here I will also state that it was a color number 2 mixed with number 3. Here we go. And now let's check what or what does our colors so we can get for this, I will use a bit of yellow here, and I will add from this side. So here I have mainly yellow. And then I will add from this pedal a bit. And you will see that I have got really warm yellow. And as a way, how you can mix golden yellow, warm shade of yellow with a bit of a Rhodes Scholar. And now, let's see what will happen if, uh, we will add, our dominant color is going to be rows. And we will add a bit of this mixture of this yellow. So then we will get also quite interesting color, beautiful shade. So here we have this range of colors which we can get out of this too. But in fact, you know that here in the middle, there are really huge range. And in fact, you can like if you're really interested, you can make the whole page only of this range of nixes. And later I will show you one more that also you can get deeper and to see the values of z's color shades. But let's move. So we have explored that as a first sat, as a first secondary color, which is orange. And out of our four colors, we have got four different shades of orange. 8. Secondary colors: How to mix Green: Let's have a look now at our second secondary color that is green. So you know that in order to get green, you need to mix yellow and blue. What we are going to do this, this time we are going to mix lemon yellow with like cool shade of yellow. Lemon yellow with school shade of blue and with warm shade of blue. And the same with warm yellow, we will mix it with cold shade of blue with warm shade of blue. So here we have our second experimental with a secondary color, which shades of green will we get now sells the same. We are starting with our yellows. So here I have my Hansa Yellow Light. And the same, I will use my accordion book. And I will indicate already here my Hansa Yellow Light. And now I will add the hansa yellow light. Phthalo blue. I had really a bit, bit by bit because blue is really, is much stronger pigment. So in case if you are mixing, for example, when you are mixing yellow with red is better to start with yellow because it's like lighter color and you will need less amount of red. In case if you will start zone opposite, you will start with stronger color. For example, in this case, if it would be blue or red zone, I will need that much more amount of yellow to that color. And probably you will finish with extremely big amount of color mixer. And then maybe you want like as a color which you have got that. Then I'm in the final gala which you have got. So here I start already to have some green color. So I will add a bit more of yellow to make it more intense. And here you can see that it starts already to appear my green color. I will add a bit more. So here we have our green color. So let's place it here. That is green, which we have got by mixing color number 1 and number five. So I will indicate here that is number one plus number five. And here in the middle, I will indicate these green. Really beautiful green. And now let's have a look what will happen if disease green, we'll add a bit more of yellow so that they're dominating color will be color number 1, which is yellow. And we'll place it here. This one is so juicy color, I really like it. It's like May green. Now, this gallery you can find it or similar to sap green depending on their producer, which brand it is. But you can see that you have already these beautiful green for painting, really fresh, fresh spring, beautiful colors and leaves. Okay, so now let's have a look, if it will, let the dominant color is going to be blue. And you'll get these really, really cool shade of green. For example, this green would be nice to use for some shadows, but not the way it is. Later. Next part, we will see how we can balance this color and to make it not so saturated. So that is when we have used blue. We have got this range of greens. Our next experiment is going to be the same. Let's use the same yellow. 9. Secondary colors: How to mix Violet: Now we'll start with the most interesting part of our color mixing that the world needed to get their search secondary color, which is while it, in order to get violet, you will have to mix blue and red. So that is really challenging and you will understand now why they have put here also warm shades and cool shades of red. That is really important in order to get a while it, in order to get wireless, I will use rosa can agree on rows and I will mix it with phthalo blue and then with ultramarine blue. And the same always spiral scarlet, or if you have cadmium red. So then the same, I will use it and mix it with phthalo blue and ultramarine blue. So let's have a look what will happen. I will start with school shades of red, which is Rose. Yeah. So let's take here and let's see what will happen if we will make some cool shade of blue, which is a tele blue. So here we have already a really beautiful shade of violet. Yeah, So here is our violet. That is, if two mics rows with phthalo blue to mix cool shades of blue and red. So here we have this color. Here is going to be here in the middle, while it as this way. And let's see what we'll get. First, I will fill this one with a grid on rows. And let's see what will happen if it would be dominant rose color. So n just tiny amount of this is too much. We will need a bit more off rose. Oh, really beautiful color area like this shade of light. I know. Lilac color or how it's called, but it's okay. So let's see what we will get. This is a warmer, okay. Let's see it because there was these two colors, you can get really huge range of different shades of purple. So this one is more towards pinkish. And now let's have a look what will happen if we will add a bit more of that, the dominant will be phthalo blue, so that so then it will get cool, shade darker. So you see there's a range of wireless we start to get. So the same. And what I explained before that this could be nice for some light parts and this kind of purple is really good. To use foreshadow, and here will indicate that we have used fallow blue color mixture is number 3 plus number 5. Three plus 5. And next one we are going to use is the same for here. So we are going to use the same. Here. I will place it agreed on rows. And this time with ultramarine, blue french ultramarine. Here is really beautiful. So I already, already scholars so that that is the shader which you will get. The dominant color is going to be zeros. I think that now you will be also after we have mixed so many colors that now also you feel more excited about these color mixes with you start to get and I couldn't manage to stop it then not to give one mixing. Okay, So then let's try to find which would be stronger while it, so here it is, and Alice plays here. So this is another wireless. And I would say this one is more like typical. While it, which you can find under the name of violet. Here it is. And let's see what will happen if you will, the dominant in this mixture is going to be ultramarine blue. So here we have more bluish, stronger while it. And that is when we add Ultramarine blue. So here. But actually you can get a really wide range of these kind of shapes. So it's not only these three flat indicators, this one, it has been Number 3 plus number 6. Number 6. So here it is. And now always going to be really interesting part of our experiment. Or we'll see what will happen if we will use warm shade of red. So here I will indicate red, usually for boss. So I will place here as well. In both experiments, we are going to have this warm shade of red. And let's see if we will add a bit of tallow blue. This time we're using cool shade of blue, yellow-blue. Okay, So we are mixing, mixing and what we get, It's some kindof doesn't look like while it okay, I will try to add to show you that the completely with this color mixing. So let's keep on mixing and let's add a bit more. So that is the maximum while it, which you can get out of this two colors. So that is going to be, it's not even wireless. I would say it's gray, gray color. Here. We will indicate that this is going to be beautiful. It's really beautiful shade of gray, but it's not while it, and don't tell you that rose, you won't be managed. You want managed to get any kind of beautiful violet out of warm shades of red. So let's see what will happen if we will add more red. So then you get these kind of dirty read. And what will happen if we will add a bit more of blue so that it would be dominant color, this color I like more. So I would say that this color mixture is really great for if you want to get some kind of beautiful shades of gray. So Zan, this is that mixture where you can get really beautiful range of these kinds of colors. If you're looking for some grace is then definitely you can mix it with warm shade of red and you'll get really beautiful. Gray. But not violet. That is, if we will use the yellow, blue and let's see what will happen if we will mix this warm shade of red with Ultramarine Blue. Who knows, maybe this time it will be better now. So that is if the dominant color is going to be red and we'll get these kind of color. I also don't like it. It's really dirty color and I know it's really just dirty. I don't like it. And let's add a bit more of violet or more of ultramarine blue. And let's see that maybe still it's possible, but now it's not, was it well, okay. So this is this kind of while it, which we can get mixing warm red with ultramarine blue. So here it is. This shape. It's also quite nice shade of gray, but it's not while it is that is beautiful shade of gray. And if the dominant is going to be blue. So this part is more interesting. And look, that is a dominant, really, really tiny amount of red, but the dominant color is ultramarine blue. So then it's like also really beautiful, like unsaturated color. So this you can use for some shadows. This color is also quite nice. So you can see that this warm red, actually, you can mix it with blues in order to get the differentiates all of grace, beautiful grace. That is definitely a three colors which you have to use. And here I will indicates that this is ultramarine blue. Let's indicate this one. It has been number 4, number 5 in this mixtures and this one it was number 4. Number 4 plus number 6. Number 4, I haven't left space. It's bad. Number 6, but I mean, it's possible to see. Okay. So zed is our first bark of color mixing. That out of primary colors. We have managed to get secondary colors. So this is our orange, this is our green, and this is our violet color here. How we have got from primary colors, secondary colors, orange, green, and violet. And you can see is that out of this mixer. So we can get for different types of orange, for different shades of green, only two shades. Now of wireless. And also we can get dark shades. So which is like grays, dark gray color. That is also really useful by the way, that now you know that also with Z, so seeks bright colors. If you need some, you don't have black. How will you manage? What will you do if you don't have black, but you need. So that is the way how you can get these dark shades. In fact, you can see is that we have got really great range of colors. Because in fact, between these two, you can get a really many different shades so that we have taken on these ones, which are also the basic ones are which I used in the color wheel. In another section, we are going to look at what will happen now with complimentary colors. So let's have a look at that isn't really interesting. 10. Color Values. Mixing Two Colors: One more thing which I wanted to commend you. What other kind of color swatches you can make is that is, for example, if you are mixing two colors, so what you can do, for example, in my case, I will take yellow, cool shade of yellow. And here I place it quite concentrated color. So then I would like to explore the values of this color as we did at the beginning. And I remove some part. And here it's already lighter. Then again, I remove another part and it's already lighter and almost everything. And it's a really, really light version. Then as a next step, which I will use as at this again, agree, don Rose, I place it in the scanner and the same I would like to study away layers. So then I do this. Swatches, diluted color, a bit more diluted. First. By doing this, you learn to users of water. And then you, you aren't afraid to add more and more water to your watercolors because you know, it's a beautiful. The colors is when they are really with lots of water. And you can appreciate it because as this color is quite strong and it's like screaming up. But these shapes is a already more beautiful. And for flowers, for main body of the flower, I would use these kind of values of this color. And then in the middle, so this is our color, number 1 and number 3. In the middle. We will play. So what we will get if we will make as a whole like that, orange, which we would like to get the same. I'm mixing orange, steal a bit more of yellow. So here we have orange and I do the same. First, the concentrated color. Then the next value, more diluted. Next value, a bit more diluted. And then really soft color. So here we have these two other columns. I would do color number 1 plus EBIT of color number 2. So in our case, I will add a bit more of yellow. And that mixture will turn more towards the yellow color. So it's more like warm shade of yellow and the same I will explore as a whale use of this color mixture. And here I place next one. Then again, I remove a bit more up and then it's lighter. And I remove more, and then it is even lighter. And now I will add color number 2. And a bit of color number 1 means is that dollar mixture, I start to add more rows and C or how it will change. So here is the mixture. And this aim, I start to explore the values of this color. And then you see that out of these two colors, you can get also quite a variety of shades based on different values and are very diluted here. So now, you know another way how you explore and experiment with color mixing of two colors. Here I have made like which is dominate one color or another. But in fact, you know that there's huge range of color mixtures. And here a huge mix of values. So just explore and play also with these colors. 11. Complementary Colors: Green - Red: Another thing which I wanted to explain you that is complimentary colors. That for me it was a quiet this concept. It was quite hard to understand the how it actually practically, practically to apply. Because I'm in here is are so many differences, options and different concepts and how to apply practically when you are painting. So one of the key concepts is a complimentary colors that you can see that this line, it's indicated so they are opposite, one, opposite another place in the color wheel. And why, why? It's actually helpful to apply in practice when you are painting. One of the things he says that first, that that is really harmonious combination of colors. Let's have a look at this, for example, these greens do remember that when we have painted them, I have all these ads is green is really great for using it in the shadows. But you need to answer like to get it unsaturated. Because like this, it's too bright and I mean, it's really like screaming from is this color is like grooming hair. So how to make it harmonious? So that is when you can add the complimentary color that let's have a look at our color wheel, that, that is green. And for greens are complimentary colors. The opposite one, that is red. So by adding to this color, a bit of red is green. You will see that it will start to get our beautiful shade of green. So at the end, you will see that we have mixed yellow with blue. And now we will add, we need to add a complimentary color, which is red. And then we'll get beautiful shade of green. So in this way, I would like to introduce you to have a look what will happen if we will make three colors. So actually it's a really beautiful now that we have the same three colors. Another tomb to balance it even more. Now it's right. It's really, really, really amazing once you get in practice, this feeling of managing three colors and three primary colors, you will be amazed how you are feeling the colors. So let's uses this example. I think it's really good because you will see, so first of all, have to get out of this one. You see that it's cool shade of yellow. So lemon yellow, or in my guess is that it's a hansa yellow light. You will and mix it with cool shade of blue list I first this one and we'll see what we will get. Okay, so I have cleaned some part of my color palette and let's have a look. So we are going to use Hansa yellow. Lemon yellow with you have if you don't have this one. And also, I will indicate here that I will use this hansa yellow. And from Hansa yellow and blue, I am going to get these green, where dominant blue. We get this kind of green. So this is this green, which I have got using these two colors. And that was a Hansa yellow and color blue. So two primary colors. We have mix them and we have got green. And as we have seen before, they are complimentary color to green. The complimentary color to our green is going to be red. So let's plays here red, that is complimentary color to this green. And let's start to mix our green with a bit of red so that it's warm shade of red. That I get quite nice. Gray, green, I would say. So let's see that. Then. I have I did read I will indicate here. So I have used a warm red for here because that is complimentary color to green. And we would like to balance as a color to make it more harmonious. And I get this kind of gray. So I will indicate this is like plus and that is a result. So I have got this gray. Maybe. Let's try to add more red. Then. Again, more yellow, Hansa Light, and more phthalo blue. So let's try to mix again. Our green uses these three primary colors. So I have used yellow, yellow, blue, and red. Yeah. So I didn't like this gray which I have got. And now again, I'm using these three colors and I start to, to play with them and look which color I have got. So that is more beautiful shade of green, dark green, which you can use already foreshadows. You can mix a bit more. Let's see if we will add a bit more of yellow. A bit more of yellow. Now we're mixing already know these three colors, 1, 2, 3. So I would like to indicate it so that you won't get lost. So that is number one, number five, and number 4. These colors. And glucose, we have got already more beautiful green. This one, I like, this one is really beautiful shade of green for using in some shadows. Let's have a look if we will add a bit more of a yellow color mixture. And we began to really already warm shade of green. So you can see how it evolves. So it's really that out of these three colors, then you can create already beautiful range of greens. Now, the only thing for that, let's experiment that you will see, it's really exciting. It's a really exciting. So let's keep on doing it. I add a bit more of yellow. I will add a bit more of yellow. And look, that is changing. Now this range, what will happen if I will add a bit more of a yellow, blue. So now, Okay, I have added too much blue and I will have again to balance how to know that I heard it too much. Because look, now it's already again, but this is emerald green. So for this, the balance again, I will need to add more yellow, more yellow, and it gets warmer. So that look, it gets warmer now, but still this color is too strong. I prefer something like this. Again, what we need to balance green, we need to use red. Let's add a bit more of a warm shade of red. And let's see what we will get again. So you see, we have a red and we have got already this shade of green. And that's how you are Blaine. So you can add a bit more of red and we'll see what will happen. Maybe it will turn into some really dark. You see. So this is already too dark green, but you can create really great range of darks of Greene's book. So it is truly amazing. Know. And what will happen if I add, okay, not so much, because then it's disbands because phthalo blue is really strong color and it's immediately get into, like gorillas, these kind of screaming color need to be really careful with phthalo blue. Now, again, I'm using yeah, so the color which I have got, it's already more balanced. And I think that so z, so I can dry a bit more of the yellow, blue, but it's too strong color. So that is a range of colors which we can get by mixing. Yellow light. Cool shade of yellow, cool shade of blue, and warm shade of red. Isn't amazing. You know that this class is not for just watching, this class is learning by doing so. That's why I encourage you to try to do it on your own and to see what you can get. So this time, let's see what will happen if we will add cool shade of red. That is quinacridone rose. So glass, glass can occur, don Rose and other balances these green. So first we will make here, I love how this rose. First of all, we'll make out of yellow and blue, green. Let's do it. Right here. I have a bit already dirty my yellow. But anyway, so the same yellow-blue. And we get this kind of screaming green. So this screaming green, Let's balance it with a bit of inaccurate on rows. So here we have already one shade of green. This looks already better. And let's keep on adding EBIT of. So here I have added more. Can agree, don Rose and we get z is beautiful shade of green. This one is really beautiful. And let's keep on mixing. And I will add a bit more of yellow. We'll see what will happen. Now let's try to add more yellow, which kind of warm shades we will get that yellow. So here And bit more. So here we have the foil add a bit more of yellow. It's going to be even more beautiful. So I think this shade of greens is really amazing and as a important things that actually they already balanced. So you can use them for painting. So they are in so open like this kind of clear colors. And let's add a bit more now of quinacridone rose. Oh, this one is really beautiful. I like this shape. And this is one of my favorite mixtures, is sap green with a grid on rows. So you know that how you can get it just with phthalo blue and lemon yellow for example. So here we have to again add even more quinacridone, rose, and then you get these kind of really like autumn, winter shade of greenery, know this like brownish colors. I really, really allows these kind of brown colors. And if dominates even more, look, you can get this kind of shape. It when you add more integrated and rows or any rows which you have. So here we have. Isn't it amazing that this amount of shades which you can get for painting greenery, not and this we have dried only one mixer if we will make sense. This light, yellow with cool shade of yellow with school shades of blue. 12. Complementary Colors: Orange - Blue: So let's have a look now with our oranges. Sometimes as it's an orange color, It's also needs to be balanced so it shouldn't be so bright until wanted though, you're looking for some kind of moral like pastel color scheme. So in this case again, let's have a look for complimentary color. That is orange. The complimentary color is blue. Hey, let's have a look. What will happen that our complimentary color to orange is blue. And by the way, is the same. For example, if you need that, we're looking at how to balance orange by blue. But it could be the opposite that you don't need to have. So bright blue and you would like to have it more softer color of blue. So then you can add just tiny amount of orange and we'll see what will happen with blue, what we have mixed up before. In order to get orange, it has been yellow with red. So I think that this orange is really bright. Let's try to play with this orange, how it will be balanced with blue. So for this mixture, that is number warm shade of yellow, cool shade of red, that is rows. We will use two different types of blues and we'll see what will happen. First. We will have to get, in order to get this orange, I will use warm shade of yellow. Here I have it. Warm shade of yellow. And I will indicate here that I'm going to use warm shade of yellow. And I will use quinacridone rose in order to get orange. So here In indicate agencies. And now let's have a look or how it will be in practice. First, we will have to get orange. Let's get, oh, this is too much. Okay. I will start again with a bit of the yellow. So you can see I have added too much. Can I get on the rows because it's stronger rather than yellow and completely like into like more turning towards a rose color. So here I have these orange this orange color. Okay, Is this one has got to be already like brownish. So should be is that I haven't cleaned my brush. Okay, so here we have a number, colours, number two and number three. And we get this orange. So we get z scholar. And now in order to balance as these color, we will need to use up blue. So we will try to blues that. And we'll see what we will get for this first. Let's use a bit of yellow, blue. And we can see that we get a range of different brownish colors. Exist, brown colors, really warm, beautiful colors, warm forests. So then let's keep on adding a bit more of a grid on rows. And we get z range of colors and a bit more of yellow, and a bit more of the yellow, blue. So here we have, but we need orange like to be balanced. So here is another way. Look another shades. This looks a bit like Serbia or 0 sienna. And a bit more warm. And a bit more of integral in rows and fallow blue. So this is a range of colors which we can get mixing these three colors. A bit more of. That is already too much. So we will have again to balance it. But then you see that we can get dark shades that by adding quinacridone rose. And we get this kind of really beautiful wireless. See that here. There are some wireless. And we're going to add a bit more of rows and a bit more yellow to balance it. And then we get this kind of shades. So it's really like returned from oranges into beautiful while it a bit more of a yellow, blue. And then it's like cooler shade and a bit more of the color blue. And it's almost black. So Zed The way how you can get this range of colors out of mixing these three colors. I forgot to indicate that here for this mixture I have edit, The yellow, blue. We have seen which color. So we can get, if a will decide, DO a balance these orange with a cold shade of blue. Now let's have a look at which are shades of colors. So we will get, the EPA will decide that the balance orange with warm shade of blue, which is ultramarine. Again, I'm mixing warm yellow with rose, garden rose in order to get orange color. So this one is already too much red. So here yet. So now I have this beautiful orange color. It's really bright. And now let's add a bit of ultramarine blue. So here, really, really tiny amount of ultramarine blue. And I get already this kind of brownish orange. And this reminds me maybe 04 of squirrel or folks would be quite nice. Color combination. Then it will decide that a bit more ultramarine blues and we get this shade of brown color. So you see how you can get that out of these three colors. Really beautiful brown colors. I would say that it's really, these colors are really beautiful. Or for a painting, for animals, for Look, this shade. Let's add, at the moment, I'm just a bit, bit by bit, ultramarine blue and see how it's changing. So more intense, look really beautiful, brown color. I will add a bit more of ultramarine blue. So now it starts to get cool shades of brown and a bit more awful drummer and blue. And we're moving already to gray shades. And here it's already, we're moving really like cool gray color. What will happen if we will add a bit more? So then it starts to be, I will move in that direction now so that they're able to see it. It's really amazing. I mean, that once you get this feeling of color and dad look this color, it almost looks like a Payne's gray. So i means that it's really great when you start to get that feeling of mixing colors and beat by beat, you are changing them. And then you are able to get a really beautiful shades. So look now we already, so what we are doing now is at blue and we started to balances is blue with this mix of orange. And then we get a really beautiful shades of gray, which are also quite balanced. Okay, Now I will add even more blue. And you will see because it's, it works both ways. If you would like to saturate these oranges and you add blue, and they're opposite way, if you would like to saturate our two unsaturated and to balance as this blows and you add a bit of orange. So let's try to add a bit more blue and you will see it's really, it's really beautiful. I mean, still a bit more. And here it's like already I would say it's quite close to Payne's gray indigo, this mixture of colors. So here we know already how to get this range of dark shades of gray if we need them. So in this case, it has been a color number 2, warm shade of yellow worms, cool shade of red, rose, and ultramarine blue. Okay, Let's indicate the Z1 is color number six. 13. Complementary Colors: Yellow - Violet: Now let's have a look at our final group of secondary colors. So that is, while it as a complimentary color to wireless on the color wheel is yellow. So in order to balance, while at 0, we'll have to add the third color, which is yellow. I would get like as a base mix X1, that is color number 3 and number six, cool shade of red, which is Rosa, and warm shade of blue, ultramarine. So in this case, let's see what we will get, which colors will get day if we will. Mix. Can occur dawn rose, ultramarine, blue, and yellow. So it's two different yellows and which shades we will get. So, and here, Let's indicate that in order to balance while it, we need to add yellow. So you see how everything is logic and starts to get into one puzzle. It's really, really amazing. And I really like, I really like as a feeling of the color. So once you get how to work, so one thing with another. So let's put it in practice. Here. I have my can agree don Rose and I will add a bit of ultramarine blue in order to get the beautiful shade of violet. And then we will start to balance it. A ways. Here is our wireless, but the only thing that my page still hasn't got dry. Okay, I will try to do my best not to spoil anything. So here we have really, really beautiful shade of violet. You can see that it's really beautiful. Let me indicate which colors are mixing and the moment it's quinacridone rose, ultramarine blue. And then we'll try to balance it with cool shade of yellow, hansa yellow light and warm shade of yellow. My guess is new gamboge. Okay, So based up here, that is color number one, color number 2, and this one is 36. So out of 36 we will get these beautiful shade of purple. And then let's see if we will add yellow and we will let these warm yellow, which range of colors? And we will get, I start to place here maybe the yellow. And let's see how the color is going to change. So it starts to be also it's quiet. Diluted. So let's make a bit more concentrated color and then you will be able to see more of that color difference. So again, I mix in this beautiful violet color. It's really reach and really beautiful. And then I will start that bit by bit yellow. So here eight days, a bit more yellow, a bit dirty color like this. Let's add a bit more of yellow. What I should say that with this color mixture, It's really beautiful, if you will. Because as these colors I really like exam for creation now of beautiful pastel dreaming colors. In this case, first you need more water. So once they are more watery, they get more beautiful. And now what we will do, we will add a bit of good actor don Rose and we get Z's shade. Then we had a bit more of quinacridone rose, and we get this shape a bit more ultramarine blue. So you see how these colors are changing and they're getting really beautiful, beautiful shades of wireless them, but they are quite muted. So they are in, so screaming colors. They are quite muted. That is more ultramarine blue and a bit more of ultramarine blue. Now, I will add a bit more of quinacridone rose, it was too much. I will add a bit more of yellow again to balance it so that it won't, it would be quite muted color and a bit more of ultramarine blue. And let's try a bit more of a grid on rows. As far as these three colors, I really like this combination of a hansa yellow light and the drummer in blue and quinacridone rose. And you can check my other class where I show in details range of different shades of colors which you can get that out of these three colors. And why nose eyeglasses is how to get, learn to make some beautiful, all dreamy colors. And also another glass which would be also interesting based on z3 color mixtures. That is, how to paint white flowers in watercolors. So there you will see as options which you can get out of these three colors. But this three colors as they are just magic, million me. And I will show you one more thing that also you can get if incase, you will add more and more yellow to this mixture. All right, that is too much already. But you will have a resistor colors. You will have to Blake quite well. Because you know that by mixing yellow with ultramarine blue, you will get green color. And then there's this green color. You also would be able to balance it with Quinacridone Rose. So here I am getting green. And then I will start to get this mixture, which was going OK. Radon, radon rows with ultramarine blue. And my idea to get some kind of different interesting shade of green. Let's place it Here. Okay, so I really suggest you to watch my other two classes about these three colors because with them, it's like really small piece of paper. And I have showed us a variety of the colors which you can get. And the most interesting thing with these three colors is that they are amazing when you add water. So for example here I will show you this tiny area. Once you will start to add water, and once they will get dry, you will see which magic they create. We can add x0, x1, and then you see that from the same petal, I'm mixing different colors and I just introduced, okay, So this one we will live because that is another way how you can check grade different beautiful effects are with color mixtures. That these are when you're wet water. And you'll see that the colors start to behave completely different way compared if you place them just on dry paper. So for this, I have like completely separate glass and you can check. And if you're interested in these color mixtures, and we will move to the next column mixture. What will happen if these colors, this violet we will mix with warm shade of yellow. Let's see what we will get. So again, I'm mixing quinacridone rose with a bit of ultramarine blue. And I get this beautiful reach while it. Okay, so and now I will start do it bit by bit. Warm shade of yellow and let's see what will happen. So it's also start to be muted color. And this color, I really like, It's really balanced and I would like to use it is really nice illustrations or for painting flowers, these kind of muted color palette. So for me, this is exactly this combination of colors is my favorite one. Then they tend to use it quite a lot in my painting. Just because you can get really great range of colors looks at now we have edit a bit more of a warm shade of. Yellow. And look that it starts to get Zs. And really crazy about this kind of shape. They're really warm and they dance with such a nor. I just enjoy these kind of color mixtures, these shades of colors. They are really, really beautiful. So, okay, in this case, we have seen that what will happen if we will balance while it with yellow and it could be as opposite way that the dominant color is going to be yellow. And we can balance it with violet, which means that by adding beat by beat a bit of quinacridone rose and of trauma in blue. And that's what I'm doing now that what will happen if my dominant color is going to be this yellow. So here it's really beautiful, beautiful, beautiful shades of orange. I will try to add a bit more of ultramarine blue, and then we will get this color. And a bit more of an agreed on rose color and a bit more organic garden rose. And we'll get already in this reddish brown color. Here, we can get more outlets it a bit more of ultramarine blue. And then we will get this dark of dark brown color. So you see, actually it's unlimited amount of shades which you can get because actually you need that bit by bit. And you will see that first you add a bit more of an oxygen rose and see how the colors change. And then you add a bit more ultramarine blue and see how the color is changing. So it's like nonstop experiment and look that now we have got black color. It's almost black. Lucy. So that is Danio. Find it a really amazing that using these three colors and look, we have got this kind of muted while it then turning into brownish orange worm. Then this brown or with a bit of shade of red. And then we have finished with dark brown and black color. I think it's really amazing. And also we will manage to get a bit greenish shade, if you will. If our main mixture is going to be yellow with ultramarine blue. So I will place it somewhere here. Let's place. So that is another also shade. But to make it even more agree, like to make it green there, I will need to add a bit more of ultramarine blue and a bit more of yellow. It won't be green as green compared to these ones. But still some sheets. So here you can see, but it's more like brownish, round. You show like warm shade of brown. For me, this mixture is the most amazing one. So I really suggest you to play with this color mixtures, with these colors as they are really, they have unlimited opportunities. And by the way, can you see what is going on there? That now the colors start to split. They start to create different patterns. And while still is getting dry, you will be posted. It will be possible to notice how it's changing and starts to get more and more interesting colors. So this one is really, really great way to see how behaves as a pigment that when you make also swatch just on the dry paper and then also how it behaves. If you place it on wet paper, just try and you will see which magics creates. 14. Mixing Primary Colors: I actually would like without noticing, we have checked that many different combinations of colors, like for example, low color mixes based on three primary colors. This means is that we have checked what would be if we will mix a color 1, 3 with a color's number 56, then what will happen if we will make a number as a mixture of do and seeks a whiz colors 3 and 4. And then what will happen if you will mix that mixture 3 and 5 with 12? There is a one mixture, one more mixture, which is left, which is also quite good. Be interesting to explore. That is a mixture of colors too. And for warmer yellow with warm red. And to see how it behaves with blue, number 5 and number 6, you will see that we will get completely different mixed color shades. So that, that's why I would like to show you that. Like maybe also we'd like hidden possibilities, but sometimes you need these colors, that's all. Then you will know how to make them. That will take as a basis is orange. And we will check it how it is. You can mix it always lose. And then you will see that the whole range of different possibilities of mixing these six colors, like three-by-three always among them. We have covered it. Isn't it amazing. Okay, So this time we will mix warm yellow and warm red. I know that Broglie, you're already tired of mixin so much, but so many colors. And but I think that I guarantee is that after doing as he's beat by beat, that it's only now it takes so long time. But then once you will get that feeling of color mixing, you will see that how easy. And it's really amazing how you can make so all these variety of colors cells, That's why EBIT more of patients and enjoy your color mixing. So then we get this beautiful orange. It's quite warm shade of orange. And let's see what we will get if we will mix it with cold shade of blue, yellow blue in my case. And with ultramarine blue. I will start with Stella blue. And I will add bit by bit here. And you see that it starts to get like some greenish color. Sometimes you need this kind of a green colors. So you need to know how to get them. If you add a bit more of yellow, you will get this shade of green. So that's why it's quite, there isn't, is really useful. And with a bit of red, you know that green and now we're dread and we balance it. So you see how everything is interconnected. Know that it has that at the end, these three colors and depends on what color we would like to get. Then we add a bit more of one color or another. So now we go, I have a little bit more of ultramarine blue and goes is get these really cool shade of green. You see sometimes also you need these kind of shade. Now I'm in a bit more ultramarine blue, a bit more of warm yellow, and I get this color. Let's add a bit more of red. And then it's like really cool shade of green, a bit more of red, and a bit more. So let's see what we get. So that is already, actually, there are really lots of shades of green, which we have got now from our basic orange color. Now here I did more of yellow. Let's add a bit more. Maybe your color shades would be a bit different from my ones. But don't worry, you just mix and z are the ones which you get and add one color or another and see how it's changing. So I heard it a bit more ultramarine blue, phthalo blue. And I will add a bit more of a duller blue. So then I will finish with this kind of rich, rich dark green color. So here this range of, I would say that it's more like greenish range of colors. And now let's see what we get if we let ultramarine blue, I think that it's going to be also quite interested in the result. So we're making first with warm shade of yellow and red we're making will get orange. And then we'll start to add Ultramarine blue bit by bit until we get Z's shade brown. Like this. And I keep on adding ultramarine blue this way and a bit more. And you may notice that with 15. Color Mixing Chart: Okay, and now he says a final color mixing swatch, which I would like to show you. That is when you have a dabbler and this is more what we have been doing here. That is, the basic exploration of color mixing. Which means is that I really suggest to do all these long way of color mixing and which we have done to this moment. Because then you will get the basics and you will be able to mix any color which you wish. But then further, when you, for example, would like to buy new colors or you have a more extended color palette. You just did can make this kind of a color swatch table. And it will be helpful for you to get an idea in which like which shade you will get and the words which are like in which way you do move. And that is a table. I have six colors, so I have made seven cells because one is going to be empty and each of them to centimeters and millimeters. The division between them. You can a place here where should they bother? Always masking, masking liquid. You can just mask it awhile your painting that is also quite useful. And then you mix the same two colors as this one is like a diagonal roar as the same colors. What you can do to make different values. So this is more concentrated and this one is more diluted. So you will have also idea in this way about different values and then you start to mix. So first, we're cool shade of yellow with warm shade of yellow and you start mixing it and fill in the whole table. So with the warm shade of yellow, which yellow I will get. So that is some kind of fuzzy scholar. So we start here and then you will see that do each color and mix. Mixture corresponds two colors, two boxes. So that is one that when we mix this one with this, but also we have the same color mixture like below. Know these two. And what I would suggest you use this one to make more concentrated. So you will see how color is color, Michelle, when it's intense. And second half of your table to make it diluted version. And then also you will have the idea how it would be if it is diluted. So for example, let's make I won't feel it, complete it because I think that the already quite dire dark color mixing. But I will start with just several examples of that. For example, these rows with Stella blue. So how you can do more concentrated. And then as a next one. Would be more diluted. And another way you can do that, for example, here it would be more dominant color number 1. And in the second row is going to be more dominant color number 2. So then in this way also you will have like not to make them all similar. Now let's have a look at, I will show you with this one how to do the opposite way. However, I will, I'm sure that till now, if you have seen what we have been doing that you should be already expert even better than me in color mixing. So here, for example, that is a mixture of Quinacridone Rose, a bit of ultramarine blue. So here is a mixture where the dominant color is, where's the dominant color is kinda good on rows. So I would like to make it more like this one. And now let's make another one. Where is the dominant would be phthalo blue. So here is a mixture where Stella blue is the dominant one. And then you see that it's also another way of making this double. So then you apply in a bit more and then you get more variety of color mixing. Now compared, if you will make it the ratio that you will get as awhile it, Let's make for example 11. That is going to be in a grid on rows with ultramarine blue. Our beautiful while it. So just same that we can make this beautiful violet and place it here. And then did a bit more of clinical don Rose and in this, in this one into play. So you see it's like to differentiate. So while it, I find it more interesting to make it as this way so that you make one side dominant one color and another side dominant another color. So in such way you will be able to see more variety of shades which you can get. The idea you will have that mixing these two colors. You will have a wireless No, but not to make up for example, this one. This also two colors as they are quite close to one another. Not the cool shade dance warm shade of yellow, but this color mixture. So when you are making one intense and anosmia like more diluted, they don't look for me. So interesting compared if you would make that, what happens if a one color dominate? And what happens if another color is dominating? So I think that you have understood the idea behind this devil and that also it will be helpful for your future. Color experiments and color explorations. 16.
