Mixing grey


I was in the middle of a painting the other day, and needed a grey to add to it.  Looking at my palette I needed to clear a space to mix some......

see what I mean

so I decided I might as well Mix what was there already





mixed


The grey I needed was there all the time
 Just mix up what is already on your palette



-  the perfect grey -

  9. I use my dirty part of my palette more than the clean so this made me happy to see your results. I love the way your paints look too: all yummy and gummy and ready to do great things.

  11. I like the post you are doing because I learn new things.
    I specialize in acrylic techniques, rarely use watercolor. And watercolor is interesting because it gives a beautiful effect.
