There are an INFINITE number of colors that you can make from one tray of water color paints! That's what our artists explored this week in class, while they practiced their brush strokes and paint control.
Any color, mixed with a small amount of another color, makes a new color. That new color can be lighted by adding water. Or darkened by added more pigment. Or changed ever-so-slightly by adding a little MORE of the second color.
Gradients, shades, tints, oh my! How many different colors can you make?
We're still working through ours but we're hoping to fill page with NO REPEATERS!
