Emotion painting Workshop 2:

Mixing Yellow, White and Black
Add yellow, white and black on your pallet.


TIPS: The darker colour is added to the lighter colour.
Use a spare clean brush or pipette to add water in the colour. Less is better


Have a spare paper to test the colours before adding to your A4 paper.


Apply yellow on your paper: thick, thin, very thin (watery).


Make some marks on the paper using only yellow.


Creates shapes, lines, movements, dots, etc.


Explore different emotional words: happy, sad, angry, excited, alone, bright, etc.



How did you feel about the thickness of the colour on the paper?
What kind of marks are you making?
What do you like about Yellow?

If you don’t like Yellow, what is it about this colour that you don’t like? The vibrancy, the brightness, the texture…?Now mix, yellow with white = yellow tinted*

Remember the darker colour is added to the lighter colour and if you can use a different brush.
* Click on Art on SurfaceI have left some blank space on my paper to add the new colour. This will allow me to see how the colours are reacting with each other. I would recommend this as it will help you discover more about the colour.

When mixing colour, you need to know when to stop adding yellow into white.
I have collected from a local paint store some paint chip to have some example.

Apply tinted yellow on your paper on top of the yellow. You can either follow the marks or

change them



What do you like about tinted Yellow?
If you don’t like Yellow, what about tinted yellow?
How do you feel about the colours together?Mixing Yellow and black= shaded yellow*
