  • You can mix colours with black, which will take the light out of them and make them
    much duller.
  • You can mix colours with grey which will make them less intense.

    duller tones of a particular colour. It is often better to mix these darker in-between colours in this way rather than using black. Black seems to deaden colour, whereas colours toned down by their complementary seem to have much more life about them.mixing colours — watercolours
