Blending techniques can be used to layer different colors on top of each other. If you mix yellow and blue, you get a pretty green. Red and yellow make orange. Blue and red make purple. Your final color will vary depending on how much of each color you put into the mix. If you are feeling adventurous you can even fade from one color to another or make some areas darker to show that they are in shadow.
