How to Make Gray and Brown Paint Using Primary Colors

This title was presented by editors as a challenge, so how could you resist a painter? The first reaction was to think why someone is disturbed if other finer and compatible neutral ones are available. I could imagine how to do it, but in reality I did not try. So I went out to the studio early in the morning and experimented with my nightclothes. See what you think of my results below:

And to readers who take the first steps to become an artist, I'll make some definitions as we progress. So, what is the neutral color?

Neutral hues: The neutrals can be rustically classified by Grays or Browns. Experienced, very fine mix of the many colors of painting. However, mixing the three primers can be mixed. This is the following: How to make gray from mixing the three primers: Mix the blue and red equal parts of the mixture, resulting in raw purple results. Add to this mixture yellow parts until Dark Gray does not appear. To make Chroma * easier, you can add a small amount of protein very carefully. * What is Chroma?

This value is dark or light

2) Making browns

Blending the equal parts of blue and yellow produces a raw green. Add to this mixture tiny red parts until you reach the correct brown. For example, you might want to choose a less intense Brown or Chroma for your current painting.

It may seem obvious to add White to the new Brown blend. But that would be a huge mistake. Instead, add more yellow colors.

  • How to avoid yellow? This is mixed in the palette,. This is the only and only way to achieve "pure" color mixes that are essential when using gray or brown. In creating a new painting, it is tirelessly easy to reach a brush and start color mixing directly on the canvas. Despite what you see in Hollywood films of famous artists, you can never get the pigment out of the bristles wiping the rag or rubbing it with rags. The color residue ends in new blends and mudslides.

    TIP. I'm asking you to take your habits to use brushes for staining, never mix.

  • Other Methods for Creating Neutral

19659002] You can create more subtle neutrals in the colors used in the current colors. For example, if you painted a painting with the storm clouds, it probably used Cobalt Blue that was mixed with the White in the sky. If you want gray to further define the clouds, you can do this:

  • Remove the Blue Cobalt Blue and mix it with Complement * Burnt Sienna – and a fine gray tone will appear in some white can be mixed

* What is the supplement?

This is the color with the dominant color * Wheel. For example, the complement of Blue Purple – or just opposite – is yellow-green.

* What is the dominant hue?

You guessed this, right? This color or Hue works on the most used painting. So, if the painting is a portrait and a dark, but neutral Brown color, you need to improve the color of the subject, try this: Mix the red soil, such as Burnt Sienna – used by skin tones in your portrait print – with Ultramarine Blue to deep but neutral Brown.

If you want to create the Neutral or the Primary or other way, experimenting is the only way to find the most appropriate blends for your style and the selected subject. Bonus is the fun you're doing. (C) Dorothy Gauvin
