    Well you have done it again Alex, what a load of …. succinct, comprehensive well filmed explanation of a difficult and important subject. I am also an admirer of Richard Schmid and will finally buy a copy of his Alla Prima. Thank you.

    This really helped me simplify the thought process for choosing color, since I always get so overwhelmed. Thank you!! I'm really looking forward to more videos on this topic

    Cool light doesn't necessarily produce warm shadows. It all depends on the colour of the background, because shadows are illuminated by the light reflected from the background.

    You did it Alex, you have made the single most important video explaining, in plain terms, what one really needs to know about painting color in general. Thank you, love the rest of your videos, I have learned so much.

    Hi there! For eggs (min. 5.55) you use "warm dark oxide red", is the same "permanent madder deep"? Thank you!

    This video is eye-opening. I have always looked at subjects and simply asked, "Is it lighter or darker than what is on my canvas?" Adding, "Is it warmer or cooler?" significantly changes the way I see things. Thank you!

    Very rare – someone who actually knows what he's talking about.

    i always have a problem picking out colors, trying to get them exactly like the real ones, i'll try this approach next time it sounds so much simpler and more effective, thank you so much.

    What are your thoughts on White, appearing to cool down another colour when mixed together, do you agree?
