Mixing shadow colours

Mixing Shadow colours....we all end up with a palette of mixes and this gives a great opportunity to create some shadow colours. 

Picture 1 the messy palette.

Picture 2 added clear water to mix those colours up. These are now perfect for your shadow colours in a painting.

Picture 3 when you have used them, you can always decide to clean up the palette and start again.

These mixes are ideal for shading and mid tones.

    1. That's the beauty of it Robin, after a lot of palette work, those colours will always come back again :-)
