Basic Colors to Start Painting with Acrylics
With so many colors available, it can be difficult to know which ones you should buy when you first start painting with acrylics. While we all know that it is possible to mix a rainbow of colors from just three primary colors (blue, red, and yellow), most of us don’t, preferring the ease of being able to squeeze a particular desired color directly from a tube; and some colors from the tube are simply brighter or darker than anything you can mix yourself. However, you can’t buy or carry with you every color and tube of paint that’s available, so knowing how to limit your color palette while still being able to mix the colors you want is an important skill.
While there are many limited color palettes you could use to start off painting with acrylics, the colors listed here make up a good basic palette of acrylic colors and from it you should be able to mix all the colors you might want.
