This week, I'm super super excited to be sharing how to mix another one of my favorite blue colors. One that I use on a weekly, if not daily, basis! We're learning how to mix navy blue paint!
Navy is such a gorgeous and classic color. It is used in so many designs, and for good reason! I am so excited for y'all to listen to the color theory section of this tutorial - because there are a couple of insights that you may not have thought of before - I know they were new to me, but make perfect sense now!
Learning to mix navy blue is going to come in so much handy for y'all as you design custom paintings and shop products. My sweet couples often request this color for their custom calligraphy vows (the number one requested color for sure!), and it is my go-to mixture to use both for men's wedding suits, and for painting jeans. It is also a great color to use in landscapes, both as accents for skies and ocean scenes. The uses are truly endless!
Want to learn watercolor alongside over 675 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!

Magnolia green is the perfect earthy green color. I adore using it as a complement to lighter shades of green in floral pieces, and as the main color in herb paintings like the basil piece we're creating today! Its more natural tones are reflective of new beginnings - and in the color psychology portion of this lesson, you'll learn why - and how to best use this color!
