Values Charts and More Color

This was our next project in my color theory class. The scan did not come out too dark but we had to take a few colors and mix white with them to get the tints. Jane had a technique she taught us that you started with the dark color first and added the white to it. This was different than I teach mixing colors. Next we mixed all our colors on the mixing paper side by side at once and then added or took away some of the mixed colors until we had 9 that were distinctively different. Sometimes the colors I mixed jumped too far to the darker color and I had to remix with more white. The second black chart was better the second time.
