Advanced Color Wheel For Watercolor- Part 1

Learn About The Possibilities of A Limited Color Palette

This lesson steps through the process of creating a color wheel starting with a set of six watercolor paints. The starting six are mixed to create nine new colors – three secondaries and six tertiaries.

This is the first lesson in a series of three. At the end of the third lesson, you’ll have a great, advanced color wheel and a new understanding of the character and capabilities of the colors on your palette.

Learn how to create a variety of color for your watercolor paintings by exploring the possibilities in with this color wheel. Starting with six specific colors, we’ll create nine more – three bright secondaries and six intermediate – or tertiary colors. This video is the first of three videos we’ll use to explore the possibilities of a limited primary palette.

Using a limited palette of colors will develop your color mixing abilities and create great color harmony in your paintings. We’ll get started on that journey toward color mixing mastery in this video.

This is the first in a series of three videos. In this one, we use six “palette primaries” to create some bright secondaries and surround them with some bright teriaries as well.

In the video, I’m working on a color wheel printed on a 10″ x 14″ sheet of paper.  The drawing layout download prints to a letter size piece of paper. You can trace it out and work on it at this size, perhaps working with a smaller brush.
