How do you blend
all the colors in your painting together?
It depends on the
medium. For oils or acrylic I apply directly to the canvas in
big strokes with trowels or big brushes - the bigger the better.
Mixing the colors makes them muddy. I use pure colors out of the
can or tube. They get mixed right on the canvas. For watercolor
I use a lot of wet in wet with the color dropped in. There is
a lot about the subject of color actually. I never analyze because
I am an artist who is a natural colorist. I don't actually know
how I get the colors I use. I see them and use them instinctively.
Color is my favorite part of painting although I like drawing
