Painting Tips and Tricks: The 3 COLOR RULE makes Painting Easy! YEAH!

Painting Tips and Tricks: The 3 COLOR RULE makes Painting Easy! YEAH!

AN EXTREMELY EASY STAGE I ACRYLIC PAINTING: APPLYING COLOR USING THE BASIC 3 COLOR RULE Oh no! My stark white canvas is scary. How do I get rid of the white? How do I apply color? Where do I start? EEK! These are fears I struggled with when I first started painting and a fears I see so many of my students struggle with now. Understanding the 3 Color Rule and some basic blending techniques will help relax your mind. First of all, it always helps to create a composition before you even pull out your canvas. See my blog on Creating an Original Composition to help you with that step. But for this blog, let’s say we have a basic composition.

How do we know where to start? First things first… Preparation: Set up your Palette and get a large flat synthetic brush. I used a 2 inch Flat Taklon Brush. Paint Needed: I’m using Student Paints made by Dick Blick Art Materials. They are great for practice painting. Black – just choose one.. Mars, Ivory etc.. It doesn’t make a difference. Chose the black that you happen to have. Bright Red – Yours might have Crimson or Rose. You want a good red color with very little orange in it. If you’re not sure, mix a tiny amount of it with white and see if you get a true pink color. If it has...
