Mixing New Colours from those you already have

So you have a few colours in your collection, most of us have.  Some colours may be missing like SEPIA or VANDYKE BROWN, even BURNT UMBER.

Well, if you have Raw Umber, Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna....these will give you those missing colours.

Here's how...

RAW UMBER + ULTRAMARINE BLUE  =  SEPIA


SEPIA + BURNT SIENNA = VANDYKE BROWN



RAW UMBER + BURNT SIENNA = BURNT UMBER



Go on, give this a try and see the outcome, 
so easy to add to your collection of paints this way.

    1. It's worth trying this Judy. I purposely didn't show examples, different monitors would likely not be true to real life. Always better to experiment with our own supplies I think.
