162 Painting with tints

In this video I use a selection of tints and tones provided by Gamblin Colors. Many artists use tints and tones as the basis for their painting and add limited primaries. This is generally referred to as tonalism.


For me tints are a way to subtly change the values of colors. I found it made subtle value shifts very quick especially when I wanted limited variations of shading such as in the clouds.


Let me know how the technique works for you.
