Buy both and save! Colour Wheel + Flesh Tones Palette. 2 x Guides to mixing colours
Understanding & mixing colours can be made SO much easier with an Arts Tree Colour Wheel! This double sided, laminated A4 document breaks down the mysteries of choosing which colours you want,
mixing the colours you want, finding harmonious colour schemes, understanding cool and warm colours, & how to use them.
Printed with light-fast inks and laminated to be wipe-clean, this Colour Wheel is the perfect studio companion. De Gillett, a master of colour, used only Atelier Interactive acrylics from Chroma Australia in hand painting this wheel, guaranteeing your ability to obtain the same results when using the same colours. There is a handy breakdown of reds, blues and yellows to help you choose precisely which equivalent named colour to choose if using other brands of paint.
The wide range of tube colours now available means that the old ideas of starting with primary red, blue and yellow, mixing those to make secondary orange, purple and green, then mixing all those to make tertiary colours is outdated. Today’s Colour Wheel must include the newly available Magenta and Turquoise pigments to be complete, & so De has expanded the original 12-point version to include 16 different hues readily available to artists.
Flesh Colours made easy-
Getting flesh colours correct is notoriously difficult, and so we have developed this handy resource for use with those of our online workshops dealing with the face and figure.
This double sided laminated A4 mixing guide shows you how to mix the right colours to paint the palest redhead, the swarthiest tradesman, and everyone of any age in between. Colourfast & laminated. Using Atelier Interactive colours from Chroma Australia, De has distilled the pointers given to her across many years by many of Australia’s greatest portrait painters.
Starting with “mother” colours, you simply follow the chart to mix the ‘mother’ down with Titanium White, and/or Naples or Cadmium Yellow to lighten, and with a mix of Carbon black & Raw Sienna to darken. This gives you the large range of tints and shades required to show the shadows and highlights across the face, giving it form and character. Many ideas about mixing flesh colours include only Caucasian skin, but this guide gives you practical guidance to portray faces of many ethnicities, in many different lighting conditions.
