Sketchbook Series #8

I am back for another quick sketchbook series exercise! This week are exploring the elements of art through color and mixing with white. When you mix a pure color in this case I will be using Phthalo Blue with white this process is also called a tint.

Quick Refresher:

Tint: Color theory defines a true tint as any hue or mixture of pure colors with only white added. A tint lightens the color, but it doesn't make it brighter. Even though the color may appear brighter, in actual fact it is not. In other words, it remains exactly the same color, only a paler version. Furthermore, even a small amount of white added to a color, transforms it into a tint.
