    Warm and Cool color

    A lot of the advise I received at the workshop was to play more with the warm and cool color relationships. My knowledge of these is very minimal (yellow and red are mostly warm, blue is mostly cool, warm comes forward and cool recedes). I'm wondering if anyone here has any useful resources or knowledge to share for learning more about this.

    Hmm, I think we need to buck up and translate that entire site into something more... something less... painful.

    Maybe a paragraph by paragraph analysis?

    Haha, it's not fair! The 'big' words are one thing, the centered and tiny paragraphs are another!

    I think you lost me once we started getting into blackbodies.

    *edit* but I'm glad I powered through it. The section on "unsaturated warms" and the general section on painting warm/cool contrast at the end (basically an overview of most of the points covered with some specifics to paint) was hugely informative. That brown tile on the cube illustration blew my frickin mind....
