Warm colors love mud
They don't mean to, it's just what happens when you try to add shade to sunny yellows, snappy oranges, and warm reds.
Because gray is naturally cool. Even if it says "warm". Warm simply means warmer than cool.
Learning to add realistic shade to warm colors is important in art but it's essential in watercolor.
This month we're celebrating Scarlet, a warm and almost orange version of red. Learn how to shade Scarlet beautifully.
