For more than 200 years the world has accepted that red, yellow and blue - the artist's primaries - give new colours when mixed. And for more than 200 years artists have been struggling to mix colours on this basis.
This book has changed the way that artists and all who use colour think about colour mixing. Translated into many languages it offers, for the first time, a way of thinking and working which replaces all that has gone before it. With sales of over 400,000 copies worldwide it has become the standard reference book in this subject.
By unravelling the many ambiguities and myths inherent in the established way of working, Michael Wilcox has transformed colour mixing from a haphazard affair into a thinking process.
The sequel to the original `Blue and Yellow Don't Make Green' this updated and fully revised edition is packed with newly researched information. An extra 80 pages, new layout, new information on the transparency and make up of colours, and many new colour swatches make this the ultimate guide to all who use and mix colour.
This innovative new look at colour mixing is applicable to oils, acrylics, watercolour, gouache, pastels, coloured pencils, silk screen inks and all arts and crafts employing colour.
Stop mixing ‘mud’ and wasting expensive material. Mix the colour you really want – every time – and achieve your fill expressive potential. There is no other way to filly understand colour mixing.
