Mix it up!

This summer, because I got to paint, I also had to practice my very rusty skills of color mixing. Not as easy as I remembered, especially when I was trying to up my painting skills. This requires accuracy. This photo depicts the massive amount of paint I ended up with before I got the right color. This is much more than I needed for the size of painting I was doing, but luckily, oils don't dry fast, so I stuck it in an airtight container and marked it with the date. Hopefully, I can revisit it and use it to make another color for a different painting. Waste not, want not.
