A LESSON IN COLOR MIXING PART 2

In today's lesson on color mixing I  will share with you an easy way to mix INTERMEDIATE COLORS  and how to mix TINTS, TONES and SHADES.

INTERMEDIATE  colors are  reached by mixing one primary color +(plus) one secondary color as shown in the diagram below.
TINTS are achieved by adding  WHITE to a color.

TONES are achieved by adding GRAY to a color.

SHADES  are achieved by adding  BLACK to a color.

The amount of WHITE, GRAY or BLACK  that is added to a color will determine the intensity of the TINT, TONE, or SHADE.

Next week I will be sharing with you how to determine WARM and COOL colors.  Colors that reflect emotional values.

I hope you have enjoyed this week's lesson on color mixing. Please stop by next time for more on color mixing technique.

Have a great day............Deb
