Using Color for Effect
This is the last week in our watercolor unit.
In class we will have a demonstration of how to use color for effect. There are several techniques for this. We used muddied dark colors to bring out the contrasting pure light colors. The muddied colors were mixed with brown, purple, blue, and green the colors blends to make a dulling effect. This can add a dramatic effect bringing out the lighter colors.

The illustration of the butterfly show the contrast of using contrasting colors to highlight each other. Green is opposite of pink so each color makes the other appear more brilliant.
