Tertiary Colours

Mixing a primary and secondary colour to get yellow-orange, red-orange, red-purple, blue-purple, blue-green & yellow-green.

Thumbnail Sketches
Very small preliminary sketches (2" X 2" or 3") simplified into the 5 or 6 basic shapes. Great way to make compositional decisions before working on a large piece.

Allows the white of the paper to reflect back through the paint.
