I am not even sure if white is one of the colors. Which is odd because it can look so great amongst them.
That is, if you pay attention to a couple of key ideas.
And that is what I am talking about this week.
And not just talking, but demonstrating.
Join me for a few minutes as we take a closer look at my favorite non color, white.
In this weeks video I am demonstrating 3 ideas.
#1 White will work better in your art if it’s just a little bit harmonized with the surrounding colors.
#2 Adding the tiniest amount of pure white in a spot or two of your painting can be a subtle but potent final adjustment.
#3 OK here goes… I am going to share the recipe of my not so famous, custom white color. It is called “Lyla’s White” and is named after my eldest daughter, Lyla. I love both so much.
We sell “Lyla’s White”, along with our other standard, custom colors in the Art2life Store.
But do me a favor and keep this recipe a secret just between us…ok?
Let us know in the comments what you know about white.
Happy art making today…
