Creating interesting blacks and grays


  1. Orange/Blue combination
  2. Mix Burnt Sienna and French Ultramarine Blue. This is the fastest and easiest of the complementary combinations. Mixed with white it gives you a neutral gray, closest to white and Ivory Black mixture.
  3. Red/ Green combination
  4. Mix Thalo Green with Alizarine Crimson. Another mixture would be Cadmium Red Hue plus Permanent Rose with a color-wheel    The first combination makes a gray with a lavender tint commonly used to paint metal like silver, and pearls.
  5. Yellow/Violet combination
  6. Mix Burnt Umber and Violet (which is a combination of French Ultramarine blue and Permanent Rose) Rarely makes a neutral    If too warm, add a little French Ultramarine Bue.
  7. Other combinations
  8. Burnt Umber and French Ultramarine Blue
  9. Burnt Umber and Thalo Blue
