Have you ever struggled to mix yellows so they keep their glow?
Yellow subjects are notoriously difficult to paint because it’s really tricky to judge what colours you need to use.
If we add the wrong colours, it can make our yellow look green or ‘muddy’ and it can lose its vibrancy.
And it can feel really disheartening when your painting doesn’t have the sunny glow you want it to.
So why do we find yellows so hard to work witth?
In this mini class, I delve into the scientific explanation, and share a technique you can use for judging which colours to mix with your yellows.
I really hope this mini class has shown you how to mix yellow paint with confidence and that it helps you to bring more sunshine to your paintings.
