Summary

1,500 Color Mixing Recipes for Oil, Acrylic & Watercolor is the definitive color-mixing resource for oil, acrylic, and watercolor artists. This user-friendly compendium is color coded for quick-and-easy reference and includes two removable color-mixing grids—one for oil or acrylic, and one for watercolor.

Follow these four simple steps to mix more than 1,500 color combinations:
  1. Look in the Color Index for the subject you want to paint—for example, "Broccoli."
  2. Find the Color Recipe with the subject's recipe number ("81") and a photo of the actual paint mixture.
  3. Use the Color Mixing Grid to measure each paint color.
  4. Mix the color.
It's that easy! You’ll also learn about color theory, mixing values, complementary colors, graying color naturally, mixing portrait colors, rendering skies and clouds, and more.

Also available from Walter Foster's best-selling Color Mixing Recipes series: Color Mixing Recipes for Oil & Acrylic, Color Mixing Recipes for Watercolor, Color Mixing Recipes for Portraits, and Color Mixing Recipes for Landscapes.
