Join John Derry for an in-depth discussion in this video Mixing color with the Mixer palette, part of Painter 2017 Essential Training.
- [Instructor] The Mixer pad emulates…the traditional painter's palette,…which is used to mix wet paint in order to blend…various multiple colors together.…One of the techniques used in conjunction…with mixed wet paint…is to load the brush with multiple colors.…This creates a stroke rich in color relationships,…and adds greater organic complexity…to the resulting artwork.…In this video, we'll take a look…at the functionality of the Mixer pad.…Let's get mixing.…This is the Mixer pad, which you'll find…right next to the color palette.…
And, as you can see, it looks like somebody…mixed some colors here, and that's exactly what they did.…I'm going to clean this off,…and we're going to create a new one.…So let's go ahead and we'll go to…Clear the Mixer Pad.…And, right now, it's set so that…it thinks the background color is this tan.…I'm going to go in here and switch to…Change the Mixer Background.…And we'll just slide this up to white.…
And now we have a fresh area to mix paint on.…And there's a few controls I want to show you down here.…
