Another Color Mixing Tutorial

This one is about mixing analogous colors, those that are adjacent on the color wheel. I am using the same pigments that I used in the color wheel demonstration:  Napthol Red Medium and Naples Yellow Hue in this case. A standard color wheel often has twelve colors: three primaries, three secondaries, and six tertiary colors (those in between primary and secondary colors).  This is an arbitrary division of colors that gives us a convenient vocabulary.  There are, of course, infinite variations and gradations.  In this demo I simply mix a greater number of gradations between red and yellow than I do in the color wheel.
