Baldur8762 Posted May 23, 2017 Share Posted May 23, 2017 Hello all, As I develop as a painter, I am becoming more adventurous in mixing paints. One of the nice things about the Learn To Paint kits was that it demonstrated just how easy it is to mix paints for darker and lighter tones. My question however is, what tones should I be using to mix for shadows and highlights? For instance, if I have the triad set for a colour, would it be better to mix my base colour with the lighter or darker tones to get shadow and highlights or would it be better to mix using pure black and white paints? I assume you can do either for similar results, but I suppose the question is, what is the most efficient and uniform way of assuring the colour you want? Thanks everyone! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
