Untitled – Purple Yellow

Today’s jumping off point was mixing colors with white and black. In the frame-design world, the mat corners we use when showing customers their artwork matted and framed, are classified by tint or tone. Tints result from mixing the pigment with white; tones from mixing with black.

I began with purple and mixed it with white. I had some English yellow that I wanted to use up, so I mixed it with white in one area and black in another.

I had no idea that the colors I chose were so very similar to those in a photo I took the other day.
