    I would ask you to not only examine the cool/warm and vise versa but also the warm/warm and cool/cool, such as orange and yellow or red and yellow and even cool yellow and warm yellow. the effects produced are very entertaining to the eye. This effect can be seen in watercolor as a result I suspect of the amount of water added to the watercolor or even the separation of the water and color where the artist is painting with just water.

    Complementary, this example carries black and white also. the shading it seems can be the mixing of complements with a bit of black added. This would of course increase the darkness of the shadow.

    Larry Poons, was constantly experimenting with viscosity, mediums, ways to apply his paint until now he is back to brushes. Below his paints are poured and thrown at canvass tacked to the walls. Before these they were pooled on the floor. The one above was painted very thin and mapped out, planned according to his color scheme. The poured paintings were the result of LETING the paint do the mixing or work.

    Jules Olitski and Poons seemed the most daring early on in the color field school. Both worked thin and then Olitski started to spray. the paint was very thick almost like drips. The nozzles on the spray guns would be drilled out. The painting began to "WORK" when the strips of color were added to the sides.

    below is an example of a very controlled wet on wet technique early in his career. This would not have been possible with out acrylics as oil would have yellowed the bare or raw canvas. it was important that the color embedded itself into the canvas for flatness.

    Late in his career Olitski returned to painting by hand, as seen above, the paint was very thick and batter like. you can see in the picture the container he used to mix in.Some color was then sprayed on top of the textured paint to obtain to my eye a shadowed affect. See below.

    Pollack used latex (early acrylic) oil, enamel, and whatever else he could afford. His painting took for ever to set up and dry and during this process many things happened like expansion and contraction when one type of paint layed over another.

    Staining and pouring was Helen Frankenthaler technique. this was achieved with the Magna paints and acrylics. These painting would not have happened with oil.
