In this painting not only will we be mixing on the pallet we will also be allowing the paint to  blend on the canvas. Most of the mixes will be loose and marbled. Paying attention to value will really help this painting pop. Notice how the sky is lightest close to the Horizon line and gets richer and darker in color as it moves up the canvas. There is also a spot of light in the middle of the hill where the colors become brighter and more saturated. Finally the front flowers are the focus creating the strongest in for color and shape in the entire painting. 

 Primary colors are red yellow and blue. Yellow and red make orange, Blue and Red make purple , and finally Yellow and Blue make green.  Green, purple , and orange are called secondary colors . You lighten or "Tint" a color using white. You " Shade"  or darken the color using black.  In this set Magenta is the red. All of the colors can be a little bit transparent because they're modern colors.When you're looking at mixing colors with primaries, try to remember little changes can have a big impact. Adding the tiniest amount of magenta to your yellow can make it much warmer and brighter. Adding a small amount of white to your magenta can make it much pinker. 

You may ask yourself, "What if I don't have the exact color I see her painting with?" My answer to you would be don't worry, use what you have. You get a  slightly different result than I do, but you will essentially get the same painting. I include the colors that I use so you can know exactly what is happening. The worksheet above is created to give you a quick reminder about color mixes . 

Titanium white- 

Yellow Medium Azo Is much like Hansa Yellow or even Cad Yellow medium are fine 

Quinacridone magenta- any bright magenta or red Quiacridone Rose 

Phthalo Blue (green shade)- any Blue but Windsor Blue IS Phthalo Blue (green shade) so remember to look at the pigment code PB 15:3

Phthalo Green (blue shade)- any green 

Carbon black- any black 

9x12 canvas

Notice the wave and flow of the direction of the brush Stroke. These clear directional strokes help create movement  throughout the painting. Especially in the cypress trees were the twirling stroke helps build the structure of the tree. In the foreground using a simple dab stroke helps us achieve our focused flowers
