Painting Tips: Basic Color Theory : How to Mix Orange Paint with Other Colors for a Painting


Hi, I’m Sue Rose with Expert Village and today
we’re talking about mixing colors using just six colors, our primary and secondary colors.
And now I’m going to show you what happens when you mix other colors with orange. I’m
first going to mix orange with the red right here, and then add a little bit of red to
it and I come up with another color, another orange. And I’m going to take my orange here
and I’m going to mix it with purple
and I come up with yet another color, kind of a softer color. Then of course, if I mix
my orange
with my yellow I get a much lighter, more subtle orange. If I mix my orange with my
red I get yet a darker and stronger orange. And then I will mix my orange this time, right
over here, with my green and that’s going to give me a whole ‘nother, duller orange
here. So, this is what happened when you mix your oranges. Stay tuned for the next segment
for when we mix our violets or purple.
