Its time for art to evolve and recognize Magenta and Cyan as the building blocks they are and discontinue the Red Blue lie we've all been living for so long.Generally speaking, this video has great information. Reply Uranos 96 August 9, 2019 i focus on the value .. at the end so..the value is a bit off… Reply Capricosm August 9, 2019 He is cheating by using brown & black paint . He should only be using white plus the primary colours red, yellow & blue . Reply ElectroKitty August 10, 2019 Thank you to Youtube recommendations lol And to your instruction! I get it! I finally comprehend. Reply Matt Buschardt August 10, 2019 Excellent introduction to a beginner like myself. Thank you! Reply Jon August 12, 2019 “We’re only interested in the value not the color, so let’s just adjust the color.” Reply YAHUSHA KING August 13, 2019 Wow.one of the best teachers ever.superb teaching. Reply Alexandra Defreitas August 15, 2019 I also found it extremely helpful when mixing paint (not specifically oil paint necessarily) to start with white and add a tiny bit of colour at a time. It's a LOT easier to make a colour too dark and a lot harder to get it to lighten up. I guess maybe with oil paints the white is very strong because you try to mix like that with acrylic and you'll be adding white for the next ten minutes 😂 I enjoyed watching this though, even though things like this are very intuitive for me, I can imagine it probably blows the minds of many people watching haha Reply Anouk Plouffe August 15, 2019 This lesson is really useful, but why do when you get close to it, you MESS IT UP? I’m sorry. It’s just a pet peeve of mine because i’m too perfectionist. And I know it intentionally but still… 😬 Reply Suy August 16, 2019 Great!

Reply Wanson Silva August 17, 2019 For beginners, I think it is better to have a set of colors. I think mixing colors to match another color would end up wasting lots of paint. Is it right? Reply sol rayz August 17, 2019 15:32 <giggle> a gray shaft and a pair of blue balls? Huh? What? Oh… this is the advanced color class… not for people with junior high school minds? oops ! Sorry!

Reply 1776 letfreedomring August 19, 2019 Thank you sir. Added to save. Reply Heath Kitchen August 20, 2019 Dude is so good he almost nailed it the first time while trying to do bad intentionally. Reply László Szabados August 21, 2019 this dude is a moron Reply Laurie Schena August 22, 2019 Doesn’t this really matter on which manufacturer has the purest primaries? My Cad Yellow for example is very warm orangey yellow than yours here. Also, Ultramarine blue mixed with cad red makes yucky brown. What to do when we don’t own Geneva paint but other popular artist oils?? Which is the best pure primaries to use? Reply Eva August 22, 2019 Loved this video – I am just learning to mix colours and this helped a lot. Also love that you have Arabic subtitles! Reply The Southern Lady August 23, 2019 Wow. Brilliant. Reply Pablo Maximiliano August 23, 2019 Excelente explicación.Silvia. Brasil Reply Vand Lett August 24, 2019 Amazing lesson. Thank you so much! Reply Frank Lord August 26, 2019 Thanks! Reply Sigurd Braathen August 26, 2019 I see red and blue. What about cyan and magenta? Reply Patrick Keller August 27, 2019 Very good explanation, but you are overcomplicating things, by using "base" colors that are already mixed. The true pure bases are yellow, cyan and magenta. Reply Demitri Demirel August 28, 2019 No you can't match any colour with this setup and technique. Notice how it only shows how to match muffled out premixed colours and not for example a vibrant green freshly plucked spring leaf. Reply Joan Dahlbeck August 28, 2019 You have made something that seems so hard for instructors to teach, teachable. The very easy way about you really seems to put it in a slow easy way to see and understand finally what I need to learn. I so appreciate you. Thank you. You have a forever student. Reply Ham. R. August 31, 2019 Great tutorial 🙏👏 Reply Thomas Hendricks August 31, 2019 I have always been an average painter, I really do enjoy doing it. However I've always had the toughest time in matching colors. I've taken a few lessons over the years but no one ever explained color theory as easily to understand as you have. Thank you so much, I really look forward to incorporating this into my painting. Reply Almag, Faris September 1, 2019 Please can someone shares with me the specific term of his color wheel where it contains "Blue, White, Red, Brown and Yellow" because I noticed them a lot from panting videos. I am doing a research about it. Thank you in advance. Reply beatchef September 1, 2019 30:00 You don't need to buy specialist tubes of paint for just one colour, you can use this guide but substitute magenta and cyan for the red and blue instead. That'll get you those bright colours, or 'any' colour. Red and blue oil paints are cheaper and hopefully made of a single pigment which is a factor in paint mixing, but I wish that people weren't still being taught that red and blue are primary colours… Reply Gerardo Leiva September 1, 2019 Master Class. Reply I Created An Account For This September 2, 2019 I liked that you intentionally messed them up because I would unintentionally mess them up if I tried this.
