Mixing Watercolors

Some artists find watercolors very convenient because they mix so well, so they only need to have the basic colors to mix them with each other and get different results. Watercolor incorporates very well; all you need is to wet the first color and move it with your brush on your palette and then add the second color with the same brush then mix. You can get purple by mixing red and blue, orange by mixing yellow and red, and green by mixing yellow and blue, and much more if you know simple mixing combinations.

Tip: You should always mix more paint than you think you need because it is very hard to mix the exact same color twice.
