by Wendon BlakeThis book has some really good information on oil color: how to use it, how to mix it, and how to make it do what you want it to do. There's lots of instruction on the various hues available and some good palette suggestions, as well as a great many exercises in color mixing that beginners, especially, might find helpful. I particularly enjoyed the many color photographs of classic paintings and Mr. Blake's discussion of each one. My favorite quote has to do with local color vs. atmospheric color: "What you know about the color of your subject often gets in the way of what you see." There were a few sections that bogged down a bit, and I found myself skipping whole paragraphs from time to time. I also think the author's painting examples would have been more effective if they had been in color.
