The Acrylic Painting Academy – Color Theory and Mixing — 5 Comments

  1. I didnt watch the video yet but preparing to get paints…. the module lists “cadmium yellow hue”. A previous module mentions “cadmium yellow light” . Are these the same colors? Good course, thanks

  2. You have presented color theory and mixing (which has been confusing to me in the past), in such a concise and easy to understand manner. I appreciate all your lessons, they have been extremely helpful. Thank you.
