Seller of over 600,000 copies, and from the inventor of the Split Primary System, this book has now become a prerequisite for those wishing to learn how to mix the colour that they really want - every-time. By understanding what really does happen when colours are mixed, you will be able to master colour mixing once and for all, and in a very short time. This new look at colour mixing is applicable to oils, acrylics, watercolour, gouache, pastels, coloured pencils, silk screen inks, textile inks and all arts and crafts which involve the use of colour. In the book, "Blue and Yellow Don't Make Green", I have attempted to offer a total reassessment of the principles underlying colour mixing. It is, I believe, the first major break away from the traditional and limited concepts that have caused artists and others who work with colour so many problems. By unraveling the many ambiguities and myths inherent in the established way of working, I have attempted to transform colour mixing from a haphazard affair into a thinking process. Allows reader to find out what really happens when colours are mixed.

Michael Wilcox has a varied background, including periods as a professional artist, a conservator of art works and an engineer, which in turn led to a study of light physics in relation to the needs of the artist. His studies led to the book Blue and Yellow Don't Make Green. Published in English, Dutch, Japanese, Korean and Chinese, this book has changed the way that countless artists now mix and use their colours. This publication was followed by The Wilcox Guide to the Finest Watercolour Paints which has led to many of the changes in the pigments used in artists' paints today. Specialist mixing palettes, workbooks and courses were then developed and the School of Colour was formed on an international basis.
