Combining Paints in Fine Art to Make a New Colour

This image is a figure from my painting. The painting and figure are not completed. The man’s clothing is a blue gray. The light is from a fire in front of the figure. I used the complements blue and orange to paint the figure. I did not want to mix the paint on the palette and get a dull colour. I also decided not to mix the colours on the canvas. I glazed several layers of orange and blue to achieve a more exciting colour. There were more layers of blue than of orange. I also used a glaze of blue violet to model the shadow and folds in the cloth.
