For more than 200 years the world has accepted that red, yellow and blue--the artists primaries--give new colors when mixed. And for more than 200 years artists have been struggling to mix colors on this basis.

This book has changed the way that artists and all who use color think about color mixing. Translated into many languages it offers, for the first time, a way of thinking and working which replaces all that has gone before it. With sales of over 400,000 copies worldwide it has become the standard reference book on this subject.

By unravelling the many ambiguities and myths inherent in the established way of working, Michael Wilcox has transformed color mixing from a haphazard affair into a thinking process.

The sequel to the original Blue and Yellow Don't Make Green this updated and fully revised edition is packed with newly researched information. An extra 80 pages, new layout, new information on the transparency and make up of colors, and many new color swatches make this the ultimate guide to all who use and mix color.
