The Art of Color Mixing and Brushwork



There are a few basic principles to color mixing and brushwork that will help you create beautiful paintings. With a little practice, you'll be able to mix any color you need and apply it to your canvas with confidence.

The first thing to understand is the color wheel. This helpful tool shows you which colors are complementary, or opposite of each other on the wheel. By mixing these colors together, you can create a variety of new hues. For example, mixing yellow and purple will create a beautiful green.

When it comes to brushwork, there are a few basic strokes that you'll need to master. The first is the back and forth stroke, which is perfect for creating even layers of color. The second is the circular stroke, which is great for adding texture and dimension to your painting. And finally, the stippling stroke is perfect for creating delicate details.

With a little practice, you'll be able to mix any color you need and apply it to your canvas with confidence. So get out your brushes and let's get started!
