Very useful, practical and down to earth book but....
on 21 August 2014
Some colours for the mixes are impossible to find in the UK! One wonders if they even exist: if anyone can find a manufacturer of Phthalo Red, please get in touch! Cadmium Vermilion is another example. And that is after looking for paints for one specific painting where a dark-blond woman is featured. Now, this may sound like I petty and if a particular paint showed in the book is not avaliable (anymore?) I should look for a replacement. Fair enough but if I wanted to experiment I'd not have bought the book in the first place.
I am scared to think what happens when I seek colours for a completely different person.
