    What should I do to keep colors pure and streakless?

    I have a problem when painting and keeping the brush clean so that the color is pure. I have been using acrylic and gouache.

    For example, I'm painting mushrooms for practice. I paint the cap cadmium red first then I decide to paint the stalk of the mushroom cadmium yellow. But the yellow gets desaturated and looks like a muddy yellow or it has streaks of red.
    I have water and a cloth to wipe my brush and I try not to over load the brush with paint.

    1. Rinse your brush untill it's clean/ get more brushes.
    2. Make sure you're not picking up wet paint from the canvas when you don't mean to. Fortunately, with acrylics this just means waiting a few minutes.
