about

1,500 Color Mixing Recipes for Oil, Acrylic & Watercolor is the definitive color-mixing resource for oil, acrylic, and watercolor artists. This user-friendly spiral-bound book is tabbed 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 Guidance 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, color value mixing, graying color naturally, mixing flesh and portrait colors, and rendering skies and clouds.
