Michael Wilcox is the specialist publishers of books, courses, workbooks, videos and CDs covering all aspects of colour mixing and use, artist’s paints, pigments and painting techniques. With sales of more than 400,000 copies, this has become the standard reference book in its field. The only book ever published which explains what happens when colours are combined and how to mix them quickly, accurately and without waste.
For more than 200 years the world has accepted that red, yellow and blue – the artists’ 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.
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.
