Good morning Candi! Thank you for the comment. Michael is right regarding white not being a color.

Don't know how I missed this, really like!  Interesting what Michael said about the white, I just painted a white house that is way too white, and haven't a clue how to remedy it.

Michael thanks for your comment and considerations. I thought you wanted to know the commercial color names. Any way, According to a color rgb percentual, ultramarine blue have also 62 R , 65G and 245 B. , while Burn siena has 160 R 62 G 45B. Analysing through out this point of view the green practicly fades out, resulting in a predominance of blue and red. I have used white to create a value scale , the same way l use to do when I paint the dead layer iin my glazing paintings.

Hi Roberto.  Hey, my friend! ... the painting looks great!   When you said you used 3 colors, I assumed you used some form of the 3 primary colors .. Blue, Red, and yellow. .... when you stated you used UB and Burnt Sienna, and white .. I understood why I did not perceive the 3rd color .... Roberto, you are painting with 2 colors ... Blue and Red ... white is not a color.  Now, having said that, painting with 2 or even 1 color (I have done both) is perfectly fine, but thinking that white is a color, might get you into "trouble" down the road .... you will tend to over use white (thinking it is a color).  Your previous painting of the boat on the sand came pretty close to an over use of white ...  if you believe that white is a color, then anything that is white, I am afraid you might reach for your white paint  .. that would be a mistake.  The Burnt Sienna does have a little yellow in it ... so a little warmth is detected here.  But anyway, I just wanted to bring that to your attention before you get further along on your learning curve.  Happy painting, my friend.

Hi Michael! I used ultramarine blue, burn siena and white.
Ultramarine blue mixed with burn siena gives you a grey. Adding white you can make a value change scale. The hue obtained on mixing those colors will depend on you.

What three colors are you using, Roberto?
