Whether you are getting acquainted with using watercolors or you are simply looking for a creative, therapeutic activity, look no further! Here we will walk through how to create a color mixing chart with watercolor paint.
Knowing the options of colors you can create with watercolor will truly take your work to the next level. Whenever I get a new set of watercolors, I have all this energy to make art but often get stuck on where to begin. Making a color chart is a great way to figure out what colors I'm working with while getting my creative juices flowing.
Figure out what colors you're working with and put them in order.
Measure the dimensions of your chart. Remember if you want all your colors to be included you need to make it perfectly square. For the example I made for this demonstration I did not use all of the colors, therefore it is rectangular. Leave room in the margins for the color names.
Label your colors horizontally and vertically in ROYGBIV order.
Mix the corresponding colors on the grid. For example, search for cadmium yellow on the X axis and emerald on the Y axis. Where the two colors meet on the graph is where you mix them.
Here you have your watercolor chart!
