This week, we're actually going back to the basics and learning how to mix a color from the color wheel. We're learning how to mix violet!
Violet is a wonderful color for us to practice, because it allows us to remember the concepts of the color wheel. It allows us to see how two primary colors come together to create a secondary color - and to see how a primary and secondary color come together to create a tertiary color!
During our tutorial, I'm chatting about when it is best to use each tertiary shade based on the emotions you want to evoke in your painting, as well as where you want to show highlights versus shadows.
Want to learn watercolor alongside over 650 sweet budding artist friends? We'd love to have you!! Each Friday, I'll be teaching a 15-20 minute watercolor video tutorial. In the lessons, I cover how to mix a unique color, a bit of the psychology behind that color and how to best use it in your paintings, and I'm even sharing a quick and sweet practice piece, so you can follow along and continue painting throughout the week!
