In the book, "Blue and Yellow Don't Make Green", I have attempted to offer a total reassessment of the principles underlying colour mixing. It is, I believe, the first major break away from the traditional and limited concepts that have caused artists and others who work with colour so many problems.
By unraveling the many ambiguities and myths inherent in the established way of working, I have attempted to transform colour mixing from a haphazard affair into a thinking process. Allows reader to find out what really happens when colours are mixed.
There are many surprises in the book, which is set out in an easy to follow, step-by-step format. You will come to realize the following:
A pure yellow and a pure blue would make black not green, a pure red and a pure blue would also produce black.
Six colours, carefully chosen and skillfully used, are all that are required to produce a vast range of mixes.
The artists' primaries do not even exist as pure colours and, if they did, they would be quite useless to us.
Stop mixing 'mud' and wasting expensive materials.
Mix the colour you really want - every time - and realize your full expressive potential.
