    great post

    Great post.

    I would caution at the use of black though to adjust colors, doing so usually kills the color, deadins it in a way. Instead create your "black" by mixing the 3 colors of the main triad of the color key of the piece, that way if you mix it in with any of your stonger, brighter colors it will reduce them but with out the same color deading effect. I would advise bringing down the value of a color by other ways of mixing and then using the created black for its final value reduction.

    here is some more information on the subject of color, pallets, blending ect. that will explain what im trying to say.

    Wonderful tutorial. Thanks for sharing!

    I have been trying to learn color theory on my own, and I've recently come across Parramon's Color Theory book. The first thing I noticed, however, is that he comes up with a slightly different color wheel (thus giving us different complementary colors)... Here is the color wheel he uses: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...eat=directlink (not attaching the image here because this is Ron's thread...but you can follow the link to see it).

    He claims, among other things, that "yellow" is the complementary of "blue". See here: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...eat=directlink

    Is there any explanation for this difference in color wheel? Is Parramon's wheel simply "wrong" or "inaccurate", or is he making use of a different color model instead?

    Thanks a lot in advance for the help!

    Ron isn't around much these days, so I'll try to answer.
    Ron is using the traditional artist's color wheel, which is based on pigment mixing, while Parramon is using one based on the behavior of light and vision, which gives you different sets of compliments. For details, check out David Briggs' site huevaluchroma.com, specifically the section on hue.
