Tip file: Warm and cool colors

From James Torlakson with Judith Gordon, in the April 1989 issue of The Artist’s Magazine:
The idea the warm colors advance and cool colors recede is central to creating believable space. To use this principle effectively, I choose a warm and cool variation of each color on my oil palette. Instead of mixing, you can use ivory black for a warm dark and Payne’s gray for a cool one.
