How to mix secondary colors (+ black and brown) with watercolors
In my new video I explain and show how to mix secondary colors + brown and black from primary colors.
- Windsor & Newton watercolor set
- paint brushes
- jar of clear water
- acid free watercolor paper (I suggest to use watercolor paper that has thickness at least 200g)
Watercolor sets have 2 shades of primary colors: cold color and warm color:
Cold Yellow = cadmium yellow
Warm Yellow = chrome yellow
Cold Red = Carmine Red
Warm Red = Sinoper Red
Cold Blue = Ultramarine Blue
Warm Blue = Cobalt Blue
Mixing secondary colors:
Cadmium Yellow & Ultramarine Blue = Deep Green
Cobalt Blue & Carmine Red = Deep Violet
Sinoper Red & Chrome Yellow = Deep Orange
You can create different shades of brown by mixing primary colors together; red, blue and yellow.
You can create black by mixing primary colors together adding extra amounts of dark blue and dark red.
