2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to the hype, 13 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Colour Mixing Bible (Paperback)
"All you'll ever need to know about colour mixing" is a gross overstatement.
The colour values aren't good enough to show the minute variations in colour and tint and shade when pigments are mixed.
There's far more to colour combinations and perception of colour than is mentioned in the text.
There is no reference to the subtle greys to be obtained by mixing the complementary pairs together, or the use of 'strong' and 'weak' pigments.
Most of the printed colour mix examples are crude and indistinguishable from their neighbours.
You would do better investing in spare painting boards and doing it yourself in spreadsheet format.
Altogether you only gain approximations from this book - it isn't the be all and end all by any means.
