Although you can buy ready-made brown paint, it's good to know how to mix it yourself. This allows you to get the perfect brown or even adjust a readymade one.
Brown is made by mixing red, yellow, and blue paint. It can also be made by mixing complementary colors.
Use warm primary colors to create a warm brown.
Use cool primary colors to create a cool brown. Add more yellow if your mix is too purple.
Mixing a warm red and a cool green creates a warm brown. If you mix cool red with cool green, it might result in purple.
Mixing purple and yellow creates a tan color.
Mixing blue and orange creates a pretty brown.
