Hello Dennis, I have watch your video on the color wheel. Very nicely done! I had no knowledge on mixing to get the grays! I am going to be practicing colors for some time.

To get things moving a little faster I created a frame in a pdf format. This way it can be printed out on an inkjet printer. It's easier than drawing one out each time for practice. I thought you might like the file so I attached it to this email. It can be printed on a size of copy paper but made of canvas. Dick Blick sells a box of 100 sheets. The link is below.

Well, I'm happy that your all happy!  :clap: Just so you's know I've added some links on

http://www.draw-n-paint.com/Oil.Painting/Oil.Painting.html

to your site. I've also put the Grabbed Frame file there for new ones visiting for downloading. I use my site to show How I've Applied the artist technique I've learned. Then I link them to the artist resource where I've learned the art principle so that they can learn from the exact same source. I don't want it to be a teaching site with material that someone else has already taught something better than I can. You will more than likely find many more links headed your way.

I still have to send out my newsletter. Haven't been able to due to a little technicle issue but hopefully it will be going out to 500+ readers soon. You will be mentioned in it. Thank you's.  ;)

I really like the 6 colour Colour Wheel!  If we all could share a box of canvas sheets it would be great, but I have already drawn my wheel on my acrylic pad which I think will work just as well!  I used a compass.  Now I'm ready to learn how to mix colors! :yippee:

Thanks Dennis, Lloyd and Nolan! :clap: :hug: :flowers:

Question:  How do you mix the gray?  Do you add some of the shadow color to white?

The other way around - add white to the shadow color mixed from the opposite (complimentary) color.

Thanks, Dennis!  :flowers: I had assumed since the gray was very light, it would be a lot more white than shadow color.  So do you add a little bit of white to the edge of the shadow pile to get the swatch for the color wheel?
