Nolan, can you please tell me the correct color mixing rule again..Value first/dull if necessary/...then is it correct the temperature after that if necessary?
If that is true, then you start with one or two colors, then find the value, then adjust temp. using more/less of those two colors.........or a third color (warm/cool)
I hope I'm on track!
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Thank you Nolan for adding that attachment for me to see. Is this the order of mixing:  Nearest tube color/adjust value/add second color (up or down)/dull if necessary?
