  • Tips on picking the right color, lighter shades vs darker shades. Take purple for example. It has 4 shades how can I tell by looking at the chart which one is the lightest shade compared to deep purple.

    I picked up golden yellow, it's more of a Orange color, mixed it with green, and have brown areas, how can we avoid getting results that don't blend well by using the color cart.

    Thank You
  • Orange plus green gave you brown because you essentially mixed all three primaries with that combination. Remember: red+ yellow = orange ; blue + yellow = green. To avoid brown areas arrange colors that only involve two primaries beside each other. So beside golden yellow you could have put anther shade of orange, or a shade of red, or another yellow. Then you could have but the green beside the yellow. I hope this is clear.
