    Oil painters are able to take the knowledge you impart to their paintings.

    Being an oil painter I am going to put the comparable oil color for each acrylic color on the pigment wheel, I found this wheel to be very informative and useful. I was able to pick the resting color before you put it on the subject. Thank you!

    Color Mixing Finally Understood

    Posted by kristine barr on 13th Oct 2013

    Because of the different ways this subject was presented, I finally understand how to mix colors. The three dimensional color wheel was very helpful to understand the generalities of where colors are on the color wheel. I found the pigment wheel was the most useful for me. With that, I was able to easily match all the colors in the assignment.2459493
