Mixing Exercise 23

Exercise 23 - The complementary pair, blue and orange, with mixed red-orange and violet-blue. Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Scarlet, and French Ultramarine.

The intent of these recent exercises has been to use various oranges against a stable violet blue. Next up will be a couple of exercises in similar fashion, the blue being the green blue Cerulean.


  1. You are too funny... "the book will arrive Wednesday"! It will be a great addition to your reference library and will open up yet another whole way of seeing and understanding color far beyond charts of mixed pigment/colors. Do check out her website as she has since updated her palette/pigment choices since she first wrote the book many years ago:
    I hope you enjoy her book!

    Thanks again for the recommendation. It looks like I'm in for more fun learning!
