The Color Mix
"Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this?" ~Pablo Picasso
"Value is the lightness or darkness of a color. On the color wheel, yellow has the lightest value and purple has the darkest. Notice that the colors change in value, becoming lighter as they move up the color wheel and darker as they move down the color wheel." ~William F. Powell
Palette: Cerulean Blue • Ivory Black • Titanium White
"Mixing Values" images and text excerpted from 1500 Color Mixing Recipes for oil, acrylic & watercolor by William F. Powell
