Ruth from Seattle asked what colors of paint I use for my color mixing lessons. I use Blick student grade acrylics, I use chrome yellow, magenta and fluorescent blue. I don't use the traditional primary colors, like red and true blue. I don't like the way those pigments mix together. All of the colors on this color wheel were mixed from those 3 colors. But I still manage to buy all kinds of colors and brands of paint, I LOVE paint and color. But I want to know I can mix all the colors myself, if I want to!
