Hi my name is Abbeth and I'm going to show you what color to use on a beach scene for sand. So I'm going to have you grab a tube of titanium white, a tube of yellow ochre and a tube of burnt umber and you're going to squeeze out some white and squeeze out about the same amount of yellow ochre and then just a little bit of burnt umber because darker colors tend to take over more than lighter colors. So squeeze those all out right next to each other, take your palette knife and mix those colors around and your colors should look something like this and if it leans too strongly in the direction of brown or yellow, just add more of the opposite color to it to get a nice sandy color. My name is Abbeth and I just showed you how to mix paint for a beach scene for sand.
