Sooner or later, you will want to paint flowers. And sooner or later, you will need to make pink. I could say just add white to red and you get pink, but that would be just too easy. First, do you need a warm pink or cool pink? Will it be in shadow or full sunlight. Always consider color temperature when mixing. For cool pinks, I love Alizarin Crimson with some Titanium White. For a warm pink, I lean towards Cadmium Red and White. For a truly peachy pink, I throw in some Cadmium Scarlet.
More on Pink later this week.
