Color mixes to make your head explode, or, green + red = purple?


Recommended Posts


There's a great book for color theory study also called: Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter, by James Gurney, very helpful. One of the books I keep on the close shelf near the paint table. A linkie if you like:


As in the Dinotopia guy?



Yep. He's got two books on painting and they're both great reads.

That image is from the linked book?

It's from: http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Yellow-Dont-Make-Green/dp/0967962870


Gurney's other book: http://www.amazon.com/Imaginative-Realism-Paint-Doesnt-Exist/dp/0740785508/


And I've been trying to track down a reasonable copy of his book on sketching: http://www.amazon.com/Artists-Guide-Sketching-James-Gurney/dp/0823003329/
