Color Theory vs. Color Praxis

Theory: Mixing red and blue produces? Purple.

The practical test:

Adding red to blue produces: coffee brown. In this case a coffee brown dolphin, no, this wasn't planned at all, neither the coffee brown nor the dolphin. "Just do it and then keep going!", produces quite interesting stuff.

In any case I've made some headway in my 366 project. Today I painted postcard 75/366. I'm ahead!!!

  1. Nicely stylized dolphin! Looks like your red is probably too orange-y to produce a true purple mix. Maybe try a more magenta-red? But I actually really like that shade of brown. :-)
