Mixing greens


I forget how much time I have spent mixing colors and have to think hard about how to describe what I am doing. The goal of this exercise is to embrace the idea that all of the colors in the box can be used to make variations on “green”, or any other “color”.  And to be aware of the spectrum of colors within what might first appear to be one color.

Watercolor class exercise: we began with the light green from our box and mixed it with all the other colors in the box, one by one.

Then mixed our dark green with each color in the box.
