Color Mixing Recipes for Oil & Acrylic

Mixing Recipes for More than 450 Color Combinations
William Powell


The definitive colour-mixing resource for oil and acrylic artists, this book includes colour mixing charts that list each colour needed to create a combination and painting instructions in a handy, portable size. Follow these four simple steps to mix more than 450 colour combinations:

  • Look in the Color Guidance Index for the subject you want to paint – for example, Sunflower Yellow
  • Find the Color Recipe with the subject's recipe number ("8") and a photo of the actual paint mixture
  • Use the Color Mixing Grid to measure each paint colour
  • Mix the colour

It is that easy! You will also learn about colour theory, colour value mixing, complementary colours, greying colour naturally and mixing portrait colours.
