More About Mixing Color

Cathedral in Milan

Start painting with a limited palette of colors, I suggest two colors so you see how they differ. The knowledge you obtain, will aid you in future painting issues.
There are very specific reasons why artist will use certain colors in their palettes. When painting outdoors compare to painting in the studio your palette will change.
Some artist/teachers suggest you use their palettes. I suggest by doing the above and learning what the color actually does is definitely more important.
By mixing colors, you will create harmony. Always remember color and the different values of that particular color is important.
Some artists make a point of jolting down color combinations they have mixed and reuse them through their painting.
As you continue learning, keep these simple ideas in mind they will help strengthen your mixing skills.
