Blue and Yellow Don't Make Green
Artists, designers, printers, and crafters alike would agree that the selection and use of color is of great importance to their work. And, yet, a great deal of misunderstanding surrounds color mixing. Michael Wilcox offers a total reassessment for the principles underlying color and color usage. This sequel to the original 'Blue & Yellow Don't Make Green' - the first major breakaway from the traditional concepts of the 3 primary colors - red, blue and yellow - contains more than 80 pages of new information on the transparency and makeup of colors and including many new color mixing swatches.

Very insightful bookUser Review - Overstock.com
This book completely changed my way of thinking about mixing my colors. It challenged what I learned at art school and provided me with a clear approach of what really happens when you mix color. I know longer buy premixed paints. Great information and easy to understand. Read full review
Simple approach, none of the usual artist hand waving nonsense. It works.
