How to Mix Purple Acrylic Paint

Hi friends! In this video I’m demonstrating how to mix purple with acrylic paint, including why purple is a colour many beginners struggle to make, and explain the color theory underneath so you’ll understand why the mixing sometimes doesn’t work out, and how to make sure you’ll mix brilliant purples from now on!

  1. I love the way you explain how the undertone of each color can result in radically different mixed colors. I’ve read many beginner painting books, but I have never completely understood it until I saw your video on mixing the color purple. Thank you.
