you can mix orange/touch of blue, yellow/touch of violet, or red/green to make brown. each yeilds a slightly different brown. to mix, add a tiny bit of the darker color to the lighter color, mix and repeat until the color comes out equally balanced (not to red/not to green for example). to make turqouise, use blue with a touch of green until you get the right color.

Art school pays off, especially with the color wheel. opposites on the color wheel make brown.

best of luck!!
