Michael Wilcox has experienced a widely varied background, including periods as a professional artist, a conservator of art works and an engineer.
During his research towards a Post Graduate Diploma in Art & Design, he spent equal time between the Art & Science departments, studying light physics in relation to the needs of the artist.
This publication followed the success of 'Blue & Yellow Don't Make Green', which has changed the way countless artists now mix and use their colors.
Other publications include 'The Artist's Guide to Selecting Colors'. This covers all media and enables the artist to buy their paints with confidence. 'The Colour Swatch book', an instant guide to 2460 hues mixed only from 12 colors. Workbooks, mixing palettes, paints and courses are also available.From Library Journal:
What is the difference between Cadmium Yellow and Cadmium Yellow Hue? How does this difference affect the quality of the watercolor? Which Grumbacher Red is superior, Alizarin Crimson or Thalo Red? These are a few of the many questions asked by both professional artists and serious amateurs that are answered here. In cooperation with the manufacturers and fellow artists, Wilcox has painstakingly researched this book, which allows readers to design their own pallettes choosing the best colors from the confusing array of pigments and brands available. Without a predetermined loyalty to a single pigment or manufacturer, Wilcox provides a color sample plus lightfast, washability, and health ratings for each color, while also giving a history of the particular color group and original pigment ingredient. An invaluable book that discusses what the "how to" art books do not; essential for any library with a sizable instructional art book collection.
