Mixing Color

Hi Y’all,

Today I worked in the studio on a house portrait. It’s a yellow house, which seems simple, but when I started mixing colors I ran into too green, too bright, too warm, too dull, too just not right!

A technique I learned as a botanical illustration student is to punch a hole in a piece of spare paper and hold over the exact color you are trying to match.

I’ve added some background, but this house has a long ways to go!
