More about this course

In this class, you will learn the essential rules of color mixing in watercolor. By the end of the class, you will be able to understand the relationship between the colors, create beautiful color schemes and mix any color you can think of in watercolor. This class works great together with my "Essential Watercolor Techniques for Beginners" class. These two classes provide all necessary information for creating beautiful watercolors. Let's get started!

The course project

For the projects of the class paint an advanced color wheel.

Printable template for the color wheel is attached as a file.

Start using the color wheel in mixing colors for your beautiful artwork. Upload the pictures of color wheel, color mixing, and the artwork itself. Thank you for watching, see you in my next class! x Irina.

I use "White Nights" watercolor paints by Nevskaya Palitra. For color wheel I used the following colors:

  • Cadmium Yellow
  • Cadmium Orange
  • Scarlet Red Light
  • Carmine Red
  • Violet
  • Ultramarine Blue
  • Blue (warm shade)
  • Emerald Green
  • Green 

You are welcome to practice color mixing with me in my other classes while painting actual projects, almost all my classes have a video on color mixing for the project we paint during the class. 

I am always looking forward to seeing your beautiful artwork, happy color mixing!
