Turquoise can be a difficult color to mix. It lives somewhere between blue and green, but also has hints of yellow. In this video, I share four valuable recipes for mixing this elusive color using common pigments on your watercolor palette.
To assist you in creating these turquoise watercolor mixes, I have created a free chart that shows all four recipes. The chart includes paint names, pigment numbers and color swatches, so you can compare your mixes with mine. Please download the chart here: https://studio.krisdebruine.com/turquoise
