This seems like it should be obvious right? If something is white…just paint it white! Unfortunately, it’s not quite that easy. White objects, flowers, birds, anything…is not usually going to be straight white. As in almost never. Today I’m going to show you in photoshop how many colors are actually used when painting white things and how the colors you choose will depend on what is around that white object.

I’m using photoshop 7 in this video, but you can do the same thing with pixlr for free
