wow, beautiful painting, wonderful colors, looks like you found the answer!
Beautiful! I like this very much!
Thanks, you guys! But I'm still not sure how to mix brown, so if anybody has any suggestions ...:-)
red, yellow and blue!Looks like you figured it out, and such a lovely botanical it is
Looks like you're doing find without it. This is beautiful.
beats me but I do like this - especially the shadow and bark on the wood. Great texture.
Hi buddy! Great looking painting! The brown you mix would depend on the palette you are using in the painting but, generally speaking, yellows and purples make good browns. Take whatever yellow you're using in this one and whatever purple and see what you come up with. I prefer to mix on the paper with wet on wet or to glaze layer over layer, but you could mix on your palette first if you wanted to.
Thank you, Karen and Laura! I guess mixing red, yellow, and blue is pretty much the same as mixing purple and yellow ... although I'm wondering if purple and an orangish yellow would do the trick. I have practice to do tonight!
This is so beautiful--the texture on the branch is amazing!
Linda, this is beautiful. You could have fooled me about not knowing how to make brown, it's perfect.Teri
Wow!! I just love this...the colours are amazing! I'm bookmarking your site..cool stuff!
Linda it is beautiful....
I already said I liked this. I just came by to say "post the picture of your grandmother". But since I'm here, I'll say it again - I like your paintings. I wish you'd post more.
Janey -- it HAS been too long between posts! I've been out of town on a business trip, and got back just in time to spend the day yesterday painting. Not a lovely picture. Painting a deck. I'll be sure to catch up with challenges and post very soon! Thank you for stopping by! :-)
Oh Wow, this is fabulous!!
If you havn't any earth tones like burnt sienna or burnt umber on your pallete then you're having to use red yellow and blue like so many others have already said- but I find that by the time you've mixed these three together you get mud. I think every artist should at least have burnt sienna on their pallete as it not only is probably the most versatile color (can use to make flesh tones) but in combination with ultramarine blue you can make the most beautiful deep browns and grays than with any other combination. I've been told to remove burnt umber from my palette as it has a tendancy to create mud but I haven't seen that at all. I use these two earth tones quite a bit in mixture with other colors.
No brown???? I could not live without sepia...
