Tips for Color Mixing Acrylic Paints
I am frequently asked about color mixing acrylic paints. Sometimes when painting you want to use a specific color that isn’t in your stash. Maybe you even tried to mix it up but the color didn’t turn out quite right and you don’t know why or how to fix it.
Today, I will give you all my tips and tricks for color mixing and even share my video below!
I use color mixing often. For example, in the background of my recent Abstract Birds painting for my Inner Tribe Membership I only used a few colors! But you can see so many colors that range between the vibrant blue and bold green.
If you will need an exact color of paint to complete a painting make sure to mix enough, if you have to make more, sometimes it can be hard to get an exact match.
To paint a background similar to the one in my Abstract Birds painting you only need 3 colors to make a variety of different combinations. I had a green and blue to blend and added white paint which changes the tint. Use short and quick brush strokes to create a layered look.
You can see just how easy color mixing acrylic paints can be. Once you start to play around you will see that with just few primary colors you can mix so many colors.
