Each year Pantone names what are to be the most popular colors of the year. They are really fun to look at but how can we take our basic paint colors and mix them  to create the colors of the year?  I'm going to show you!


The theme of the colors this year is meant to create a calm feeling.


"Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "With our culture still surrounded by so much uncertainty, we are continuing to yearn for those softer shades that offer a sense of calm and relaxation."(1)


For the first time ever Pantone has chosen two colors to be the color of the year. They are Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue.


You can mix tube watercolors or pan watercolors to make to make any color you like if you have the basics.  Mix water and the amount of pigment you'd like mixing and add a little  more of each till you're happy, dip your brush, and paint!

1. Rose Quartz
