My Project 4 Color Landscape has taught me that you can mix different colored paints and create more colors than I expected. The memory grid done with colored pencils helped me gain a better basic understanding of blending and mixing colors to create a new color. The painted grid helped me learn to mix colors and match them to a closer version of a color I imagine. I also learned that with few colors can create unexpected colors, for example, an even amount of orange and blue creates a gray. I created my final based on a photo of my friend on an outdoor rooftop using only the 3 primary colors red, yellow, and blue. This made me expand my imagination as I only had so few colors to pick from to create.Print this page
