I am trying to paint this dog and she is mostly grey. I don't want to just mix white and black together I would rather start with a color. So what would be the base color for this dog?
Also every time I work on a painting it takes a while to mix the colors together then if I stop for a while and decide to work on it again later I can't remember what colors to mix together to get that exact color I had the day before. Any tips for this?
I took this picture into Artrage to check the colors.. and it is a Brown- Grey everywhere (I took about 75 samples) in the picture. Red - Yellow - and maybe a touch of Prussian Blue would be the base if I was trying to recreate it (but I deal in watercolor)
I also did a check on your colors..and they were VERY similar.. but a wee bit more saturated..
