Making Pink

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.
