This is the only transparent 3 primary color wheel like this

copy it if you are an artist, teacher, or someone working with color.
It matches natures way of making crystals dark.

Use this Real Color Wheel to match pigments that are the correct neutral-dark color mixing complements.
Use it for mixing shadows and shade colors without using black pigment.
Use it for making 18 different complement sets and 648 split-complement sets.
A color wheel designed by a color artist painting only on location for 30 years and taking color notes.

It matches crystal color oppositions.
Cyan is from the copper element and makes Thalo blue,
the copper crystal has cyan's opposite red color.
Lead makes a blue crystal and a yellow oxide.
Quartz makes a long magenta and green crystal.

Original Real Color Wheel

This transparent 3 primary color-crystal color wheel joins together
the colors of Light, Crystals and Pigments.

For a chart of a thousand colors in gamut to print with.

Q. Why is a Real Color Wheel handy?
Q. When you're on location painting or photographing and arranging colors, how do you use it?
A. While painting you see an object. Take the brightest local color on it and mix in its opposite color to darken and shadow it.
Here are the correct oppositions to make all shadows or colors that look good together. It takes a lot of memorizing to know each colors opposite so it's handy to read the color in nature and see the opposing pigment on the RCW color wheel.

RCW Color Theory, 2-23-13

Real Color Wheel Comparison Chart
The yellow & cyan RGB scales go to black
This cools the yellow colors and warms the cyan colors.
Naples yellow, ochers & umbers should be under yellow
Cyan should darken like the sky colors, by adding blue.

Color elements make transparent colored crystals which join light and pigment colors.


Real Color Wheel and Red-Green-Blue colorwheels use the same 36 intense rim colors.
The Red-Green-Blue RGB light spectrum that the computer uses subtracts light to darken colors so only the pure rim colors and tints are similar to the colors of the Real Color Wheel.
The RCW matches the way a transparent crystal element becomes darker.
This RCW comes in CMYK for pigment color reproduction and RGB for computer work. The RCW computer colors now match the CMYK pigment colors used as inks in my giclee printer and pigments for painting with all media,

Here are RGB correct tint colors ( 1 ) & ( 2 ) incorrect shadow colors
Tint, Real Color Wheel tint colors RGB/YMC colorwheels
The RGB/CMY colorwheel on is NOT for pigments.
it does not darken as nature or pigment crystals do, it darkens to black effecting the color incorrectly.
Here are the corrected CMYK and RGB colors to match the Real Color Wheel.

36RCW#36 Yellow-yellow-green and 36RCW#1 Yellow are colors are side by side, each using 10º of the 360º circle.
Raw umber is the coolest dark pigment for the Yellow color RCW#1.10.1. Green Umber is #36.10.5 and a cooler temperature.
Orange darkens to the brown of red just the same as yellow does, Burnt Sienna is a half-dark orange.
Yellow, orange and red darken to the same dark brown.
Red become lighter by adding orange pigment or more of the transparent primary yellow. I noticed this on a cardinal in sunlight.
Orange objects darken by adding burnt sienna or burnt umber.
Cadmium red light changes to cadmium red medium or deep with the addition of transparent magenta #13, (PR:122).
Cyan, cobalt blue & ultramarine blue darken to the same dark blue, similar to the way yellow, orange & red darken to the same brown in its opposite analogous set of 7 colors.
Cyan is opposite red, when mixed together evenly they make a dark neutral. Red and yellow darken to warm brown, warm brown with cool dark blue make a neutral dark plus all shade and shadow colors for both colors before reaching neutral dark. Any neutral dark can be tinted to a neutral gray tint matching the underside of a cloud's color.

Transparent magenta and transparent green are opposite, just add any two opposite colors together to get a darker shadow color. Red and green make brown, brown is not a neutral color.



The old Red-Yellow-Blue colorwheel is inaccurate for any artist, compare them.

The transparent primary color Yellow in pigments can shade to either a yellow-green Cool Dark, like in the RGB/YMC light system or to a red Warm Dark, like my color wheel has it for pigments. The transparent color pigment yellow must be on the warm side for the artist to mix it with any other warm color. Adding a cool yellow-green pigment to a warm yellow color would lessen the intensity of the yellow and make it dirty.

Yellow to black in the RGB is very similar to yellow-green's dark in both the RGB and CMYK the colorwheel.
The Real Colour Wheel (RCW), is different. Yellow goes to Red's warm dark brown like in nature,
not green's cool dark which is made by subtracting light as in the RGB colorwheel.

The Titanium crystal has the RCW colors blue and brown in each crystal. It also turns white in the middle.

ELECTROMAGNETIC SPECTRUM COLOR CHART (EM) 7-25-8

Real Color Wheel Electromagnetic (EM) Spectrum Color Chart is very accurate and measured in Nanometers,
1,000,000,000 nm to 1 meter.
Here is how to check it for color accuracy. Open the downloaded 600 ppi EM spectrum chart and enlarge it 200%, (that's really big) and read the color just above or below the color's dot with your color picker. Read this color in an RGB color wheel like Adobe's or the RGB Real Color Wheel. For the less saturated colors like yellow and orange move the slide to the full hue. This small 72 dpi web image has a Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh profile. The download 600 ppi tif has an sRGB IEC61966-2.1 profile.

I just got this in my Emails today, 5-23-13 from David, a member of the Tesla group reproducing what Tesla did.

"The relation between electricity and magnetism was predicted by Orsted and 4 years later he managed to show it in a experiment. Its important to understand, while commonly it is bad use. The term electromagnetism is divided in two parts electricity and magnetism. Electricity is about electrons, which was discovered in 1897 tho its effects in Crookes tube was well know by Tesla, who prefer to speak in terms of pressure (of electrons). On the other hand magnetism, even if sounds strange to most of us, NEEDS to have Fe, Co or Ni atoms. It's very important to understand that EM waves don't have this component so they are not magnetic, and obviously they neither have electrons flowing around so... yes, this is a great void term.

I find of most importance James question "Somehow there's action at a distance and everybody accepts it?", i believe clearly NO. Its not possible to interact at distance. Physics is about contact anything else is metaphysics.
Waves need a medium, water, air, ether, whatever, else it's just a metaphysics tool. Waves claim is to sin function, and sin functions need something spinning around something.
The most important thing in physics is describing the way the matter interacts. I bet for the collisions as the only way it happens. Not attraction nor repulsion at distances. I would try to expose this way of thinking in every single phenomena you wish to choose.
"There is no energy in matter other than that received from the environment" Nicola Tesla
If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration. Nicola Tesla.
Of course this all is just my personal opinion, but it is my real way of thinking.
I attached a frequency table which you may find useful. Most delicate data are taken from NIST."

This is what I already have. (Don).
All visual color is represented by visible wavelengths except magenta, which is there but can't be seen, it's ultra-violet. One of the ways they are measured is in nanometers. This Electromagnetic (EM) Chart plots where the colors are in nanometers. 1,000,000,000 nanometers equals 1 meter. This color information includes every facet of color I thought interesting, wave lengths of color escaped me because I don't think that way, until now. There is more to color than just what you can see reflected. This EM chart plots all colors except magenta because magenta shows up as black, black is clear in a rainbow. Here is the link to the EM wavelength chart on my site. It's 600 ppi, large enough for you to use or print clearly.
If you want to hear Eric Dollard talk on Tesla, polarized aether and the Theory of Anti Relativity it's here now, Physics finally makes sense. (the link to indiegogo dotcom, tesla-round-2-the-mission-of-eric-dollard, was removed, sad.)



If you want more information about the electromagnetic spectrum it's on my rainbow page.

PRINTER AND PLOTTER ARTISTS, DON'T MISS THIS RGB-CMYK PRINTING COMPARISON.

The RCW Real Color Wheel is also the Crystal Real Color Wheel. It shows the colors of these elements in there natural progression as they get darker. For instance, crystal oxides containing iron and go from yellow to brown, orange to brown or red to brown.

Light's RGB colorwheel is inaccurate for plotting pigments or for the artist to use as a color wheel in the field. Ultramarine blue must be opposite yellow and plot opposite yellow, like on this wheel. It is just as accurate as the simple RGB positioning of pure colors, only better because it includes the correct darker path colors.

A new opaque Irgazine Yellow is a perfect warm darker yellow, 36RCW#1.6 while the new Bismuth Yellow is the bright full chroma RCW#1.0 The Irgazine Yellow has a very slight dual-tonality and will mix with its complement ultramarine blue to a dark.

Look at Real Color Wheel's #36.0, Yellow-green, and compare it to the primary path to dark for Yellow on the RGB wheel. They look almost the same even though they are two different colors. There is no warm yellow path to dark in the RGB, only the cool Yellow-green path.

On the RCW, I properly put them side-by-side. I use the warm path of yellow as the path of pure primary Yellow and the cool path as Yellow-green's path because this is exactly how the pigment crystals darken. Dual-toned Irgazine Green is a transparent Yellow-green and it mixes a neutral-dark with Dioxzine Purple.

Here are some crystals that could interest the artist since crystals are pigments and chemicals are made with the same color elements.

The Calcite crystal, [CaCo3], makes the perfect Cyan color with the Copper element in the Iceland Spar Crystal which changes color when viewed from different directions (PLEOCHROISM) to the color Ultramarine Blue. The Iceland Spar's copper content causes the color to appear in a span of colors from cyan to ultramarine blue depending on your viewing position to it.
Yellow in crystals is made with Iron, Magenta is the Sphaerocobaltite Pink Calcite Crystal made with allochromatic Cobalt. The Calcite Crystal is also a natural polarizing filter.
Quartz, [Si02], Iron Rose Quartz and Manganese Amethyst both touch on the Magenta color.
Copper makes Green to Cyan in the Chalcedony crystal and its opposite color in the Red Carnelian crystal. Allochromatic Nickel makes a cool Yellow in the Chrysoprase crystal, added Iron it makes a warm yellow to orange in the Citrine Quartz Crystal.
Iron will make all three primary colors in the crystal Corundum, plus making the secondary colors Red, Ult. Blue and Green. The Red and Green have added Chromium to the crystal.

HOW TO USE THE REAL COLOR WHEEL TO MAKE NEUTRAL-DARKS

Yellow on top, read red right. #1 to #36, 10 degrees each color.

To reach a dark neutral use the darkest form of yellow, orange or red (all of which are burnt umber) and mix it with its opposite color.
Red, raw umber or burnt umber with ultramarine blue, cobalt blue or cyan, will mix into a neutral dark in any combination.
Darken an orange object by first adding red, then burnt sienna or burnt umber depending on the color needed.
Burnt Sienna is a dark orange. Burnt umber is a darker orange.
Burnt Sienna with cobalt blue will make burnt umber.
Cadmium orange has twice as much opaque yellow in it than red does so you have to mix it with the orange in it's darker form (which is burnt umber) to reach a neutral dark.
Opaque cadmium orange and opaque cobalt blue will only make a neutral gray because orange is opaque with 3/4 opaque yellow and 1/4 magenta, that amount of opaque yellow will prevent it from mixing to a really (dark) dark neutral, it makes a neutral gray instead.
Burnt umber is the darkest orange, burnt umber and cobalt blue will mix neutral dark which can be lightened to a neutral gray, all neutral darks can be lightened to aneutral gray.
Cadmium red light will mix a red oxide hue or a burnt umber hue with transparent cyan.
Cadmium red light will mix a neutral dark with transparent cyan.
Cadmium red light with magenta PR:122 will make a cadmium red medium.

To darken a yellow object first use the mass-tone of transparent yellow PY150, from that point add the graduated color oxides like yellow ocher light, medium or dark to brown oxide. Green oxides and umbers are sometimes needed.
Adding blue to any yellow color less dark than raw or burnt umber brings the color to a green side.
Brown with a varying amount of blue works best. Add that mixture to any yellow oxide color to darken it.
Orange will darken farther than bt. Sienna with the addition of its opposite color cobalt blue which will make a brown.
Orange darkens first with the addition of red. Red lightens with the addition of orange.
Red darkens with its opposite color cyan and makes the color red oxide, more cyan will mix to burnt umber or the neutral dark.

Cyan first darkens to blue, like the sky, cyan at the horizon and ult/royal blue at the azimuth.
Cyan and red darken neutral.
Blue and red, red oxide or brown (both are dark reds) mix a dark neutral.

The rest of this color wheel's colors will darken by adding the opposite color until it reaches neutral dark.
All Green's darken with magenta, all magenta's darken with green.
All yellow-green's darken with blue-purple, all blue-purple's darken with transparent yellow-green.
Transparent Indian yellow Org/s PY:153 can be an orange hue in its mass-tone or a cad yellow light hue in its tint. Nickel works best in oil.
Transparent Indian yellow Br/s PY:150 can be a yellow oxide hue in its mass-tone or a cad yellow light hue in its tint.

Therefore, anyone working with pigments can reliably find truly opposite colors, which will always mix to a neutral dark without using black pigment.
An artist can create the shadowed areas of any colored object by combining that color with its opposite as found on this colorwheel.
This mixture will match nature every time, unlike the results obtained using any other colorwheel.
It works with the same colors in both pigment and light, the first color wheel ever to do that. Neutral is black in pigments, white in light.

Tubed Pigment Colors as the page background and hexadecimal codes.

DESCRIBING THIS LINK

I think a spectroscope of dried pigment color would show all colors to be impure but this can't always be shown on the web. The percentage of CMYK was from a mathematically printed chart and matched to the tube colors by eye.

I also matched the dried chip color to the computer by eye. It's close enough to paint with a computer tablet, for comercial artwork, interior design, etc. and compare the relationships of similar colors in pigments. Each color's first number relates to its position on the 36 color Real Color Wheel.
Yellow is the color numbered #1, the full designation for yellow is 36RCW#1.0.5.
The (dot) second number locates the color in each wedge as it gets darker or lighter, matching crystals. "0" is the pure color.
The third diget, .5, is in the middle of the warm to cool veritable, numbered from 1 to 9.
A zero and a number (two digets) as the second number is a yellow tint, (#1.01 to #1.09). #1.09 is a very light yellow tint.
The number (#1.1) is the first darker version of yellow, (#1.9) is a very dark yellow brown/side. (#1.9.9) is warm burnt umber, (#1.9.1) is cool raw umber.
Opposite complement pigments mix dark shadow colors just as nature makes darker and lighter shadows on any local-color object.
#1.9 (dark yellow) plus its opposite, #19.0 to #19.9 (French blue to deep blue) together mix a dark neutral.
The Rutile crystal shows progressive color, a tint of yellow, full yellow, half-yellows, dark brown, blue and black. Titanium Crystal, Rutile 


Red, Blue, BlueViolet, SaddleBrown, Brown, FireBrick, YellowGreen, Green, DarkGreen, Yellow, Gold, Magenta, LightSkyBlue.

Top-tone is adding White to the color. Under-tone is adding clear, like water or oil. Mass-tone is thick out of the tube pigment.

Tints and shades of all RCW colors,
for web designers and print artists, with in gamut CMYK HEXADECIMAL CODES.

This page, http://www.realcolorwheel.com/rcwcolorform.htm, changes the background color to the pigment color.
Like the example below.
#1.0.2, Mussini Cadmium Yellow Pale, a slightly cool Yellow. #"FFFA43", R=255 G250 B=067
Opposite color = 19.0.5, Blockx French Ultramarine Blue, translucent. #"150036", R=21, G=0, B=36
To mix a dark neutral, use the darkest form of yellow, #1.10, Burnt Umber and mix it 1:1 with its opposite color, Ultramarine Blue.
Do that with any of the 36RCW colors to make a neutral dark or neutral gray.

ARTISTS' 36 REAL COLOR WHEEL

All dots are clickable links to each pigment's description page.
The center links to the photo pigment color chip chart pigment page. Pigment artists, don't miss it!
Real Color Wheels are 360, 36, 12, 6 or 3 colors.

The color "triangles", "arcs" or "wedges" of color are numbered from 1 to 36, the 360RCW shows 360 colors.)

#1.09. is the lightest tint color. Outer tint rings are two digits, they are lighter pigments or tinted hues of this full color.
#1.0 All wedges main colors are digit zero, that's 100% full chroma for opaque pigments and a 50% top-tone tint for transparent pigments.
#1.01 The darkest tint of the 1st color yellow arc/wedge, two digits.
#1.0 the full chroma opaque yellow or a 50% tint of a transparent Indian yellow, both are in block 0.
#1.0.1 the coolest of 9 colors within that 10º arc/wedge of the 36RCW.
#1.1 the first dark block of 10 divisions to dark of this first color yellow.
#1.2 the second dark block.
#1.3 the third dark.
#1.4 the forth dark, Gold Ocher opaque or the mass-tone of Indian Yellow PY150.
#1.5 the fifth dark of 10 divisions to dark of this first color, also the mass-color of some transparent pigments
#1.6 the sixth dark of 10 divisions to dark of this first color, also the mass-color of some transparent pigments
#1.7 the seventh dark of 10 divisions to dark of this first color.
#1.8 the eighth dark of 10 divisions to dark of this first color.
#1.9 the ninth dark of 10 divisions to dark of this first color.
#1.10 the tenth dark block, 10% intensity of the 1st pure-color.
#1.10.1 the tenth dark block at its warmest value, 10% intensity of the 1st pure-color, #1.10.9 is its coolest value.

UNDERSTANDING RCW NOTATIONS

36RCW#1= color of wedge, 1 to 36,
RCW#1.5= degree of darkness, 0 to 10,
RCW#1.5.9= relative cool to warm temperature, 1 to 9

The RCW logo includes the small, multicolored reference ring, links to rcwpigments.htm


RING NOTATION
Any RCW can be seen as a set of concentric rings, with the RCW logo in the center. Comprised of blocks, these concentric rings intersect with all wedges of color. The main ring of pure colors is called Ring "0". Outside of Ring 0 lie what can be referred to as the double digit "outer tint" rings. On the RCW above, there is only one tint, the "50% tint" ring. The "inner shade" rings are the darker rings numbering from 1 to 10. 

The main ring represents the full-chroma (100%) opaque pigment, or a 50% top-tone tint of the darker transparent pigment. All of these colors have warm or cool values, they are indicated by appending from ".1" to ".9" at the end of its wedge number. Pure yellow is written as 36RCW#1.0.5. Cooler would be #1.0.1, warmer would be #1.0.9.

The 36RCW is made up of thirty-six 10º "wedges or arcs," (with stacks of "blocks" making the wedge) which are arranged top to bottom and side-by-side, around the RCW logo. A wedge depicts specific intensities of a single color. Darker versions are the blocks below and tinted versions are above the pure-color block zero.

10º WEDGE-ARC-PIE-TRIANGLE NOTATION
The primary-colors are the yellow, magenta, and cyan wedges, RCW#1, RCW#13, and RCW#25. The secondary-color wedges are the Red, Blue, and Green wedges, RCW#7, RCW#19, and RCW#31, between the primaries. This 36RCW includes all the artist's pigments.

BLOCK NOTATION
Indicates a block's position in the wedge in relation to the pure-color "0" block. Any block depicts a specific intensity of its wedge's pure color. The pure-color block is denoted by appending the single digit ".0" to its arc number. Below this block, are the "darker" blocks. They show how the pure color looks darker as it gets mixed, (in 10% increments) with its true complement, the pure color of the opposite wedge. For opaque bright yellow, use yellow's darker opaque or transparent brown to mix a neutral-dark. The transparent dark brown to bright yellow pigment is available in the Japanese auto industry, I saw a picture of a car sprayed with it.
Above the pure-color block are the "tint" blocks. This RCW has only one, showing the pure color as lightened 50/50 with under-tone thinner if the color is transparent, or with a white top-tone if the color is opaque. This first tint-block is denoted by appending a double digit ".01" to the wedge number. In the case of multiple tint-blocks add ".02", ".03", etc. as they get further from the pure color.
Note: The darker blocks, four, five and six, depict the mass-tones of transparent pigments. Other dark blocks will show the mass-tone-related opaque oxides, like brown umber or red oxide.

RELATIVE TEMPERATURE-VALUE NOTATION
Each ring of every color is solid in this printed 36 color wheel, it represents one or more pigments. The Real Color Wheel is also a 360RCW color wheel with a different color in each degree of the circle. It is also a 3, 6, 12, 24 or 36 color wheel, to over 1000 colors for color mixing machines.
A color's relative temperature is how cool or warm the pigment is in that 10º block of color. Relative temperature uses nine degrees of spectrum color for each block. RCW#1.0.1, is closer to the left primary color cyan, so it would be a relatively cooler color of yellow. RCW#1.0.9 is closer to the right color primary magenta, a relatively warmer color. "RCW#1.0.5" being in the middle of this wedges' spectrum is the center degree of color. This solid color fills the whole block on the printed 36RCW.

REVIEW:
36RCW#15 refers to a 10% wedge of this color on this 36 Real Color Wheel.
RCW#15.0 refers to a pure mass-tone pigment.
RCW#15.0.1 to RCW#15.0.9 are 9 degrees of temperature. A zinc yellow is cooler than a cadmium yellow, both color temperatures are in the same pure color ring.
RCW#15.01 to RCW#15.09, the double digit numbers refer to tints of the pure color RCW#15.0.

detail


CYAN, RCW#25.6 darkens in intensity to RCW#25.8, dark blue. It's exactly the same as Ultramarine Blue's darkest blue RCW#19.8.
Shadows on a cyan object include cyan and ultramarine blue which is cyan 50:50 magenta.
Yellow RCW#1.0 darkens to RCW#1.10 brown, Red's darkest color RCW#7.10 is also brown. That's why Rembrandt said yellow and red were similar.
Both would be black by adding 100% of their opposition color.
Shadows on a yellow object include degrees of ultramarine blue and brown, depending on the light conditions.
Beyond any dark #10 is black. It can be easily made by mixing together the three primaries: Yellow PY:153 warm or yellow PY:150 cool, or PY:100 if you are using watercolors. A neutral black can also be made by combining any complement or split-complement sets of colors.

The 7 color wedges from yellow to red and cyan to blue have this similar characteristic while the other colors are darkened with only their opposite color. This is because magenta, like the sky in the evening, takes more than it's share of the color wheel. Magenta light bends around the earth and the color wheel. This color wheel, color elements, crystals of color, and natures all have the same progression of colors.
RCW#13.0, 100% magenta + #31.0, 100% green mix to make black. That is how 2/3's of this color wheel works, the whole color wheel would work that way but we don't have the dark brown to yellow or dark blue to cyan artist paint pigments yet, I've seen them both on cars from Japan already.
RCW#7 red makes the dark brown by adding its opposite color cyan. Cyan makes neutral darks 1:1 with red pigment.

Yellow makes neutral-darks by using dark brown and its opposite color ultramarine blue. Here is a photo of the dark brown liquid (made from yellow's dry pigment) Tartrazine. Tartrazine is not a pigment for sale in tubes yet, but it should be. I use Tartrazine as a water-based ink in my plotter. I use a 1:29 mix in my yellow transparent ink.

Here is the permanent transparent ink color in my plotter, it's called Tartrazine Acid Yellow 23, an Azo pigment, PY:100, 36RCW#1.
The photo is of a 7 month sun test on the dashboard of my van in Lahaina. I included a link to a larger image to show the faded out ball point date in the upper right corner as a reference.
This sun test shows that Tartrazine PY:100 is a permanent pigment. 7-31-9

RCW#25 transparent cyan and opaque red RCW#7 are opposite colors. By using similarly-numbered blocks of these wedges to represent pairs of complements they will make neutral-darks when mixed.
2 parts cyan and 1 part of magenta makes a hue of cobalt blue.
Cyan and Blue will mix the same neutral dark with either opposite color.
100 parts transparent cyan + 100 parts transparent magenta make Ultramarine Blue. 100 parts of RCW#19.0 Ultramarine Blue and 90 parts of Burnt Umber #1.10 will make RCW#19.10 Dark Ultramarine Blue.

36RCW#25, CYAN TO DARK BLUE matching the printed RCW

#25.0 cyan = 40% mass-tone intensity in a clear media + 00% ult. blue.
Notice that the printed cyan is a 40% tint of transparent cyan, it's not shown as the mass-tone of transparent PB15.3. The same goes for transparent magenta.
#25.1 cyan = 60% intensity in a clear media + 0% ult. blue.
#25.2 cyan = 40% intensity in a clear media + 5% ult. blue = #19.0
#25.3 cyan =  50% intensity in a clear media + 10% blue #19.0
#25.3 cobalt = 60% intensity in a clear media + 40% blue #19.0
#25.4 cobalt =  50% intensity in a clear media + 50% blue #19.0

#25.5 blue hue = 40% intensity of cyan in a clear media + 60% blue #19.5
#25.6 dark blue = 30% intensity of cyan in a clear media + 70% dark blue #19.6
#25.7 darker blue = 20% intensity of cyan in a clear media + 80% dark blue #19.7
#25.8 darker blue = 10% intensity in a clear media + 90% dark blue #19.8
#25.9 darkest blue = cyan 00% + 100% dark blue = #19.9 (just like the polarized Iceland Spar crystal)
black = dark-neutral = 100 parts blue or 100 parts cyan + 100 parts red's brown or yellow's brown (same color, burnt umber)

36RCW#19, (FRENCH ULTRAMARINE) BLUE TO NEUTRAL DARK
Parts are different than percentages. 100 parts of of blue (100 teaspoons) and 10 parts brown (10 teaspoons) = 110 teaspoons = 100%

#19.0 = French Ultramarine Blue
#19.1 = Ult. Light = 75% Ult. Blue Light + 25% Ult. Blue Deep
#19.2 = Ult. Light = 50% Ult. Blue Light + 50% Ult. Blue Deep
#19.3 = Ult. Deep = 80% Ult. Blue Deep + 30% Ult. Blue Light
#19.4 = Ult. Deep = 90% Ult. Blue Deep + 10% Ult. Blue Light
#19.5 = 100% Ultramarine Blue Deep
#19.6 = 90% Ult. Blue Deep + 10% brown
#19.7 = 80%  Ult. Blue Deep + 20% brown
#19.8 = 70%  Ult. Blue Deep + 30% brown
#19.9 = 60% Ult. Blue Deep + 40% brown
#19.10 dk blue = 50% Ult. Blue Deep + 50% brown
Ultramarine Light will work if you don't have Ultramarine Blue Deep, I use Ult. Blue Light.

36RCW#1, YELLOW TO DARK BROWN
Yellow is a family of related colors. Two transparent yellows, orange/side and brown/side (a yellow oxide hue) both tint to bright yellow. Opaque iron oxides cover the whole range of yellow, umber's and ochers are oxides. Burnt brown, raw brown, French ocher, yellow ocher, gold ocher and many in between. Amberg yellow oxide is the brightest yellow ocher oxide. A great color run by the Iron element!

Hooray for Iron's opaques and Nickel Azo's transparent oils and Tartrazine Azo for water-based paints. Congratulations to the winners of the Yellow Color Award from the RCW. I know it's been done before by the Byzantine's in the Dark Ages during their First Golden Age of Byzantine, Pictura Translucida paintings but these winning pigments are permanent and tested in buon fresco.

So there are many ways for yellow to reach brown when you include the transparent and opaque yellows plus the dual-toned transparent browns that tint to ochers and yellows.




ACCURATE SPLIT-COMPLEMENTS

The 36 "real color wheel" will give you accurate split complements. Between #1yellow and #19ultblue there are eighteen 10° spaces on each side. From one to nine colors on each side of the opposite color makes the designers' split complements. Expect perfection; it happens all the time in nature.

"YELLOW AND BROWN ARE RELATED COLORS IN MANY ELEMENTS."
Earth colors with the the iron element traverses yellow, yellow ochers, orange ochers, red ochers, purple ochers, brown ochers and brown green ochers. The Nickel element makes the yellow to orange dual-toned transparent colors and yellow to brown dual-toned transparent colors. Nickel Azo is from transparent or translucent yellow, orange, red and brown. The Cadmium element can make an opaque light yellow-green, yellow, orange and red, always opaque. Lead makes yellow, orange, red, brown warm, brown cool, purple, blue and cyan, always opaque. The Copper element will make opaque or transparent cyan including green and makes a red opposite colored transparent crystal.. Gold and Quinacridone are best making transparent magenta to transparent rose. The elements Magnesium and Carbon will also make all colors. What crystals show these colors best?

DON'T EAT THE PIGMENTS
Check a box of strawberry Nutri-Grain bars sold in America and you will notice that the treats
contain synthetic food dyes like Red 40, Yellow 6, and Blue 1. Shoppers on the other side of the
pond buying the same products, however, will see that their bars get their colors from
all-natural beet root, annatto, and paprika extract. As a consequence, the Kellogg Company,
Kraft, McDonald's and other American companies that do business in Europe use safe, natural
colorings there but harmful, synthetic petrochemicals here in the USA.
