    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    as always Dave looks awesome!
    How do you know when to add colors like blue? I can grasp the reds, yellows and oranges and even green but blue throws me?

    If you pick up a finishers color wheel like this it will help in knowing what colors make what colors.

    Thats wheel dose not have blue , I have 18 credit hour in color so dealing with color has never been an issue . Any color can be obtained from the primarys. With the use of black and white

    Mike the color wheel you placed up is a artist ie. Painters color wheel. Which I learned from as an artist. The Wood finishers color wheel is great for stains which come across totally different the opaque colors.
