We’ll start off by saying that the first step is learning what technique is. After this step, we’ll start painting.
What’s a technique?
A “technique” is simply a method of color mixing and blending. It is used to accomplish several tasks such as, filling in imperfections with highlight, lightening shadows (to make it more even and to increase detail in the face), changing the intensity of colors by adjusting the thickness of individual layers, and blending together highlights and shadows.
The first thing to note when learning this skill is that the only way to really “master” a technique, is to use it again and again in your works. You can’t really master color mixing and blending until you’ve taken it a step further. And if you only take it one step further to learn how to use technique, it could be a totally different skill.
There’s also another important thing to note: we don’t need to “learn” a technique to paint. The only things you actually need to master are what we call “formulaic” colors. Formulas are the basic principles of color mixing and blending; but they are a little different from techniques.
Formulaic techniques focus on creating strong color associations through the combination of color in combinations with each other. However, each “formula” only comes with a starting point (i.e., a starting point of what you want to make), or in other words, you don’t have to start at that point to be able to do the same thing using technique. Formulaic techniques only begin there or a step, while techniques begin there.
For instance, if we wanted to create an “Espresso Red” look from an “orange-pink/purple” paint mix, the first thing we would do would be apply some blue-green paint on the face and let it dry at that point. It will take time to learn the correct technique for our case, but once you know everything you need to know about it, you can move on to start applying the blue-green to other areas.
Then we would need to decide if we want to go “flat” or “shinny” with our color mix, in other words, if in this “flat” color look/pattern/etc. we’re going to make our edges and corners darker, or lighter, so that we can use less paint. Then, we would apply black on the edges and corners
