Step 1: Coat Brush with Paint

Start by moistening your brush with water.

Then, add some yellow or orange to your brush by gently placing your it on the paint, without turning it.

Then, with your brush lifted from the palette, turn your brush to the other side, and gently dab the brush into the well of the predominant color — which is red — on the unpainted side of your brush.

Your brush should have a color on each side of the bristles.
