    Painterly Colour Mixing - Blue and yellow make green

    Thought this may be of interest.

    Mixing colors according to the book
    (Kubelka-Monk color mixing)

    Well - but not in ArtRage (and RGB colours space). Yellow+Blue = Gray.

    But who knows what the future will bring... Lets hope Emanuele Tamponi will team up with the Rage Bros. and give-away his math... :)

    please don't take this as a ARTRAGE bashing, because i love and bought it and would do it again no problem

    i found FREE ware that can mix blue and yellow to make green with a distorton tool

    i have not used this software much and no clue of all the features

    just after some blurring i get green, it has a corel outline feel to it.

    anyway i still like artrage layout ( maybe if the two got together, brushes and colour mixing with Artrage page textures and stencils )

    just a thought

    Sorry but that Artweaver blending is nothing like the 'Painterly Colour Mixing'.

    Just look at how green the first example is!!!

    ok was trying more mixing with that artweave

    it's not that easy and the colour want stay away from each other if that's wierd...

    here's another try with a black background and colour mixed in the red and yellow did not want to mix, it was a game of push it back and forth

    art blends alot better

    To me it is not so important if Yellow+Blue is Gray or Green. I just feel it's important to know what to expect when mixing colors, doing glazes etc. DoodLS

    the more i played with artweave the less i wanted to work in it

    the software was to much like photoshop/coreldraw software

    and less like painting ( the most of real painting i have even done is watercolour in highschool 16 x 20, is was scary i have no clue what i was doing and i walked away with a nice piece, but i felt it was not my main focus. mainly i was afraid that i screw up my paint by overworking the piece and no re-do ( or today's undo )

    i turned to photography and with that under my belt i turning back to painting lol

    Steve

    i just painted in artrage and i love the responce on the tools blending and the flow of the brush ( i'm posting my first wip today )

    To me color mixing that matches what I've been doing forever in the real world is vastly important.

    However, there are work-arounds. Not mixing and selecting the color I want to achieve is one. The other is to do post color adjustment in other programs (tricky). Neither is particularly desirable when it comes to the simulated art experience.

    Still I've seen good paintings, mostly from people who do direct painting as opposed to blending, as mentioned. And I guess knowing which colors blend well ahead of time is useful for keying your painting, knowing that it all should work.

    I had to explain to my young kids that on the computer blue and yellow don't make green. At least not yet!!
