23 Using Layers and a Palette Layer for Color Mixing

Learn to us layers for mixing colors and the color smaller to change your colors. We’ll also make more layers and show you how to move layers, scale layers, and use multiple layers for different parts of your painting.


The challenge is to make your self a palette layer, then do some doodling of objects from your head or reference photos. Try doing some of these in different mixed colors like orange, blue greens or purple.


If you haven’t made you own already, you’ll want to download and install the Basic colors palette for this lesson. For instructions on downloading and installing, see Video 03 Downloading Stuff
