Wet the watercolor brush fully with clean water. Slide it across the edge of the mixing palette to release as much water as possible.
Stroke the brush across the desired shade of blue. Transfer the color to the mixing palette by stirring it into the existing puddle of water. Stir until the puddle is completely blue. Don't rinse the brush after this step.
