Okay This will probably not make any sense.... can someone explain if I understand this correctly or not.... I have seen people (YouTube, several videos) of people mixing up like 3 shades of grey on their palette in addition to the colors they need.... they seem to dip into one to desaturate a color....?
So I thought black/white is to darken and go up/down in value scale....
So are the greys for making a color neutral? Just to change the brightness or chroma?
Another mixing question I don’t understand. Why do they need three greys (dark, med, light) on their palette?.... One guy saves all his paint at the end and makes it a grey for later use. What is the benefit of having all that grey?
(And these videos are not amateurs...one is old of a guy copying a Sargent painting)(one guy does say his orange was a little too orange so he added grey)
Do you guys frequently use grey as well?
I would just just play around with it all but I don’t want to waste my paint doing so.
Also with Geneva paints there doesn’t seem to be a point to this ... mix the color, match it, go.
The colors they mix seem fine to me then they go and add some grey lol... why?
(this post probably won’t make any sense lol, sorry)
