A Word From the Author:
"There are many painting books about creating portraits, but each one is different. We have so many books to choose from because we are all so unique. If we all approached or perceived things the same way, we would only need one book to learn from. But life and art are not that simple, and the differences are what make art so much fun. So, in art there is no real right or wrong way. There are just many different approaches. As creative people it is up to us to experiment and choose the techniques that fit our own style." — Lee Hammond

Understanding Color: Basics
Acrylic painting is a wonderful way to explore color theory. Its bright, rich pigments are fun to experiment with. Here are the basic color relationships to know.Primary Colors:
The primary colors are red, yellow and blue. They are also called the "true" colors. All other colors are created from these three. Look at the color wheel and see how they form a triangle if you connect them with a line.Secondary Colors:
Each secondary color is created by mixing two primaries together. Blue and yellow make green; red and blue make violet; and red and yellow make orange.
Tertiary colors are created by mixing a primary color with the color next to it on the color wheel. For instance, mixing red and violet produces red-violet. Mixing blue with green makes blue-green, and mixing yellow with orange gives you yellow-orange.
Any two colors opposite each other on the color wheel are called complementary. Red and green, for example, are complements. The painting on the facing page is an example of a complementary color scheme used in a painting. The red and green contrast beautifully, each color making the other one really stand out.
