What is the most efficient method to mix colors?

What is the most efficient method to mix colors as you would do in a palette? By shaking the pointer while left clicking and pressing ctrl+shift? Thank you.

Uh, what a nice question! :ob
Well, if you use [Shift} to smudge, you will get the full effect of the Chroma blending. This method will try to maintain saturation properly as colors are mixing and looks at RGB as a vector construct. It's completely heuristic, but curiously effective.
If you use {Ctrl]+[Shift] it will average colors, resulting in an ordinary, digital type of mixing, which really just gets the average of all rgb values within the brush radius. Good for smooth, digital type of blending.
If you want [Shift} smudge to be softer, you can use a higher FLUID:SMUDGE percentage or turn on Pressure for Opacity (toggle with [e]). You can get very soft gradients that way, while still having Chroma effect it.

Thanks for asking and welcome to the forum! :beer:
