Step-by-step

The painting comprises many colours. These colours have been created by mixing the colours of the set together. A useful tip is to first practise a little with mixing colours on a piece of paper. In this way you can develop your own colours. The example would also become increasingly more your own painting.
Before you start, go through all the stages.
