Mix it Up

Mix the color you see.

Spring is a glorious time of year! The colors are so fresh, vivid, yet delicate! On a warm spring day I like to sit on my porch and mix the colors I see. It is a good tool to teach my eye to see and then translate what I see into the matching color. Then I write down the colors I used and put a color swatch next to it.

What colors would you mix to create the colors you see here?

Why don't you give it a try? Here are some color swatch cards that you can use with your color mixing experiment. Print them out, fill them up and keep them in a file box for future reference. You will find that just a little time on your porch will provide you with invaluable information besides giving you a sense of well-being.
