How to Mix Colors | Acrylic Painting


Hi, I’m Linda. I created a company called Paint Along. Check us out at paintalongnyc.com. We have really fun painting workshops in Nashville
and New York. When you buy your acrylic paints you may want
initially to spend some time just getting to know how they work together, how they blend,
and how much paint takes to make a secondary color. The primary colors are Yellow, Red and Blue,
and you cant mix anything together and you’ve got to start whit these. So let’s start whit the yellow, and what we
gonna do is mix yellow and red together and that will give us some orange. And I am just gona dip a little bit into the
yellow, and bringing it to the other wells, and Im gona take a little bit of red, now
the red is usually a lot stronger than the yellow, so I am just gona start whit a little
bit of red to make the orange, and those to colors together make me an orange shade. I’ll go ahead and put it right here, and lets
put a reference of red onto our canvas too. So coming out around well take some of our
red and will put int into another well and then i’m gona mix some blue into it, this
will make purple. When you’re mixing you’re colors whatever
you’re working on is far as your subject matter just make sure that you mix enough paint so
that you can get trough your project without having to remix, because sometimes the colors
come out differently when you start over again. Here is my purple, and then we’ll put a reference
of blue on here as well. So i’m gona take a little bit of yellow and
put into the well here , and taking some of the blue and mixing it into the yellow, and
that gives us green! So now we have formed our Primary colors Yellow
Red and Blue, and our secondary colors which are orange green and purple. And thats how you mix your paint!
