In this exercise I laid out colors, Raw Sienna, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Yellow, Alizarin Crimson, Viridian, Prussian Blue, Cobalt Violet, Cobalt Blue, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Red Light, Cerulean Blue. I made three rows of these same colors. In the middle row I added white to produce a tint. In the last row I added black to produce a half tone. Look at the beautiful tones when adding black. I have heard so many times not to use black...but...why not? I could make my own black if that would be more acceptable. In this case I used Ivory Black and Titanium White. I was supposed to use Flake White but I didn't have any.
