Mix the paint. Remember the basic colors. They are blue, red and yellow. All other shades are derived from them and are reduced to combinations of these primary colors, with the addition of black and white. Warm range is based on mixing red and yellow paint. Admixed to the red white, you can achieve a bright pink hue, and combining red with yellow and black, you get brown. To make the color colder, it is enough to add a touch of blue. Achieving subtle color nuances, mix sufficient green, orange, blue, purple and brown. They are required to obtain the majority of the shades.
Use black paint to get rid of excessive brightness, make the color darker, giving it depth and complexity. Black paint requires extremely careful use. If you mix paint in the palette, it is enough just to touch the black paint with the tip of a thin dry brush. Also, remember that pure black does not exist in nature, as well as pure white. Therefore, prior to mixing you should put a little black paint on a white sheet of paper. If black color is clearly guessed dark blue, purple or brown, the paint should be avoided.
Add a white color to obtain a gentle light shades. It is necessary to create pastel colors: delicate beige, light pink, pistachio shades. Remember that you will not get the bright juicy colors, if you use a lot of white. White paint can be added in larger quantities than the black. However, the consistency is usually quite thick, so don't forget to dilute it with water.
