I am Jeanne Downing. Welcome.
The focus of this tutorial is about brush mixing the greens that you would use for the leaves within a painting. Down here in the lower right corner of my palate, I have laid out the colors that I am going to use for the greens in this particular demonstration. I have ivory black, cadmium lemon, and white.
First of all, I want to make a nice store, green to use for the dark value and my leaves. So I am going to into black and cadmium lemon and work and fort between these colors to make that dark value green. And as I come and add more yellow, I am getting more of a middle value green. Now these areas still some darken my brush, obviously. And then I am going to come over here and then I am going to work some white into that green and I can get lighter as I work towards the left her and add more white so that I have a lighter value of green.
So now I have dark, a middle value color and a light value color. But I want some more white back into my middle value. I just work to quite back into it. If I need to warm that up, I can add a little more yellow.
So this would be my basic color mixes that I am going to start with when I create my leaves and I can adjust the color as I need from one leaf to another. Now, I am going to drive wipe my brush, pinch the paint between my thumb and my finger and I am going to make some cooler value greens to use on leaves that I do not necessarily want to call attention too, but this will add interest to my painting. So I am going to go back here on the back side of my black and I am going to pull out some black and a little bit of yellow, not much then I am going to work pull a little bit white into that. I am going to make a little greater green, this would be a little cooler. As you can see this is much greater because there is more black and my brush and less yellow.
Remember that when you add yellow to a color or if the color is a yellow, it is obviously warmer. I can work back into my black to get a darker value, if I need to.
So I might use these colors back here for my basic setup, for my darker greens, rather my cool and darker greens. If I want to get more white and lighter and value, I would just keep that in more point.
Now, if the color setup said that you were to use in parenthesis impression blue as a shading color, then you would take the darker value green and you would sneak over here into the impression blue and add just a little bit and this would be your second value dark within that green. Usually in order to make something dimensional, you need to have a light, a medium and a dark value. You will also need to have a shading value and you need to have a highlight value. So basically, you are adding five values to that object to make it look three dimensional and to give it form.
So I am going to add just a little bit of impression blue and that would be my shading color or as some people call it second value dark. Once you have applied that color, you can wipe up your brush and then you can go back and paint another leaf. Maybe this one will be a little warmer and then you will need to add maybe for highlight. You need to add almost straight white. If you want too, you can come over here and sneak into this way and it would be mostly white because you do not have much pain on your brush now and you can work that quite as a highlight onto your leaf.
