brown – the color mix up
susan starts out with primary colors in her tray and then learns she can create secondary colors by mixing paints.
she continues mixing paints until all of her paints are brown.
she is immediately disgusted by this until she begins painting on canvas and adding the original colors back into her painting and she creates a beautiful painting and values the different shades of brown and the different shades of ALL the colors she sees.
