The subject of color seems overwhelming because there are millions
of them; how can we possibly learn how to mix every one? Here is
some good news: Every spot of color that you put on a painting has
just THREE main characteristics that you can understand and control.
You will eliminate a lot of guesswork when it comes to choosing what
color to mix and how to mix it, and you will learn to predict how a
color will behave in relationship to the spots of color around it.
