Take the guesswork out of color mixing!
With just 25 common paint colors, you can make 2,400 different hues, and they are all illustrated in this comprehensive guide. That’s 2,400 hues for each medium—oils, acrylics, and watercolors—with each hue visually represented for your easy reference.
Better yet, each color mix uses only two paint colors, so matching results are easy to obtain and your colors remain vibrant and true, not muddied by too many pigments as you often get from mixes with many paint colors.
Pro mixing tips for each type of paint are included to help you achieve winning results. This simple-to-master color mixing system will help you find and mix just the right color, every time!
John Barber is the author of the Winsor & Newton Color Mixing Guides, as well as many Transformers books.

I really like this book. It saves me time trying to guess which watercolors will make my perfect green, purple ec-tera [sic]. You have choices for oils and acrylics and watercolor...My art teacher liked the book also.—POLISH
Great learning material!—Tonya C
Fantastic book just what I needed to have next to me when I paint.—Eric Jones
Very useful, if you pick it up and use it. The info is clearly organized. You do need to try some of the mixes to confirm results, so you get a feel for how to achieve the same tints. –Ragnar Carter
