How I fix a mistake in a painting:
◽Leave the painting to dry for a few days
◽Add medium to the paint
◽Paint over what I don’t like, change the shape and/or colors, light direction, etc
◽I leave some of the previous layers showing to add more interest
What does Saturated orange mean?
It means that the color I’ve mixed has so much orange and less of the other hues showing.
Depending on the color I want to achieve I’ll either add:
- White if I want to make it lighter
- White and yellow if I want to make the orange lighter and push it toward yellow
- Red if I want to warm it or make it pink-orange, or white and red if I want to be warmer but lighter
- Blue if I want to dull it (make it grey or brown), or blue and white to make it dull but lighter
My red (Alizarin Crimson) and blue (Phthalo Turquoise) are both dark adding them without white or yellow darkens the color I’m mixing. Check out my limited palette.
