Color Mixing Exercises

After reading Above the Mark's "how tos", I hit upon this color mixing exercise, and that is how I learned about the book "Blue and Yellow Don't Make Green". I decided to order the book and try the exercises. Beth at Above the Mark was even kind enough to post a blank worksheet for us to do the exercises on. Here are my first few exercises using two colors and then adding increments of white to get lighter tints. Below this series of exercises I posted a couple of my journal pages using one of the color exercises so be sure to scroll down. The information to purchase the book is included in that post as well.

Oops, didn't quite finish this one

It's great to see someone using Michal Wilcox's book. I took a corse in color mixing years ago using his method. Thank you so much for the wonderful links. Linn
