Just replenished my oil paint supply heck YA
Also I’ve been thinking about that post going around telling you that you shouldn’t be using the normal primary colors and instead use the CYM colors?? And I’ve always learned that you need both RBY and CYM to achieve all of the colors you’d want. If you just use one or the other you’re either going to end up with really earthy colors or unnaturally vibrant colors respectively. It’s all about the hues!!
So just as like a general tip you’d want to get:
- Cadmium Red and Quinacridone Red
- Cadmium Yellow and Hansa Yellow
- Cerulean Blue and Ultramarine Blue
- And a big ol tube of white bc you’re going to be using it a lot!
(You don’t need a black bc you can mix together some of your colors and get a really vibrant off-black, it’ll make your painting look more natural. (Whenever I’m drawing digitally I use a really deep purple for my blacks))
So basically you’re getting two different hues of a color. Ie: cadmium red is orange based and quinacridone red is purple based, and with that you’ll be able to get any color you could imagine. Happy painting!!
